The video shows the bird preaching on the back of the drone and wrestling with it for some time. Then it starts pecking at the drone furiously. In such a situation, the drone drops the parcel from a height that is higher than usual. After a while, the bird flies away. The video was taken by Ben Roberts. He was waiting for his order via air delivery when he saw the raven attack the drone. He recorded the entire scene and uploaded it on YouTube.
Viewers were shocked by this turn of events. A person was concerned about birds in these times of air traffic. He wrote, “Finally human beings trouble birds in this way also… not giving space to birds to fly.”
Another viewer cracked a joke about the beverage that was being delivered. “Here’s your coffee, stirred… and shaken,” it read.
According to reports, the delivery drone company had to pause its operation in some parts of the city because of such bird attacks on drones. The drone operator Wing, which works in collaboration with tech giant Google, had to temporarily halt delivery services.
“As is common during nesting season, certain bird species demonstrate territorial behaviour and swoop at moving objects,” a spokesman was quoted as saying.
