Birds of prey making videos as they fly is not that unusual in the world, but it is rare to see them filming in Slovakia.

The Maximilián Hell Primary School in Štiavnické Bane, near Banská Štiavnica, decided to make videos using the birds. The school is the only educational facility in Slovakia that teaches falconry.
