Funny you should ask.  PBS had a very interesting series where they installed cameras in mock wild animals--all kinds of them:  flamingos, elephants, and wild geese.  They used a drone to take photos of geese while the drone was in formation with the geese.  Of course, this isn't what I really meant, I didn't mean to use a regular drone to take pictures, I meant to use the aerodynamics and flight characteristics of eagles and hawks to take advantage of the wind currents and updrafts. Nonetheless, it looks like there is an interest in this idea. I don't know the name, but one company is working on this idea.  Soon we'll have drones that can soar for days without using battery power!!! Unfortunately, they can be used for good or for bad, like everythng else.
