And now for something completely different:

"A robotic bird created for the U.S. Army for use as a miniature spy drone is so convincing that it has been attacked by hawks and eagles, according to researchers. The Robo-Raven, as the solar-powered, remotely piloted surveillance aircraft is called, was designed and built at the University of Maryland’s Maryland Robotics Center — an interdisciplinary research establishment in the university’s A. James Clark School of Engineering. The center posted a video of a test flight this week."

Can't wait to see those "nature" photos.

You know the world is crazy when the hawks start attacking the military. Maybe it looks more like a dove than a raven?
