— -- Talk about a bird's-eye view.

A conservation group released this video Saturday after it attached a tiny video camera to the back of Darshan, an eagle who took off from the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower.

The bird soared some 2,700 feet, providing amazing views of the United Arab Emirates city. His view, cruising alongside the Burj Khalifa, was see live by those on the ground -- including his roller-coaster dive and landing onto a man's arm.

Freedom Conservation put on the show to draw attention to eagle conservation.
