Talk about a bird’s eye view.

Darshan the white-tailed eagle made history on Saturday breaking the world record for the highest bird flight off a man-made structure.

A group called the Freedom Conservation strapped a Sony ActionCam Mini him and captured his 2,722-foot descent off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to help raise awareness about the endangered species.

The charity works in partnership with both SOS (Save our Species) and UNESCO, and the stunt was also broadcast live on BBC News.

“I’m really proud of the bird,” his trainer, Jacques-Olivier Travers told Khaleej Times. “Today was really perfect. I really think that anyone who saw these shots will never think of eagles again in the same way.”

This wasn’t the first time Darshan has soared off a tall building. He’s also flown from the Eiffel Tower in Paris and St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Memes are like that leftover sandwich you just remembered after whining about having no food in the fridge. Memes are like your favorite song randomly coming on when you're shopping for toilet paper at the supermarket. Life would be a bummer without memes.

If We Had to Describe the 2016 Presidential Election in One Photo, We'd Choose This One

A bald eagle got caught in the grille of a car over the weekend and we can't help but empathize with the poor creature. It just seems like the perfect metaphor for our country right now, doesn't it? But don't worry, the bird was rescued, and that kinda gives us hope for the rest of America.
