Thermals rotated and the eagle circled upon their warm lift, feather tips fluttering as minute changes in the air were detected.   Her eyes focused, and zoomed into the rock face below; a barely visible movement snapped her attention away from a vehicle paused on the track.

The vehicle reversed as she glided to her final approach. Silence now as her talons drew forward in readiness.
