Watching on the phone screen, all that I could think about as the bird came towards the Mavic was that post a few weeks ago of the video where the bird collides with the Mavic and it goes crashing to the ground...
Not the best footage; was trying different manual settings on the camera.

Had just started up for first flight out of my garden, done around 50 here now. Climbed directly up and seen the birds but wasn't expecting this. Bit of an ass clenching moment...

That looks so abrupt a dive, looks like a right angle from the camera's perspective, so agile these birds!

The black bird's obstacle avoidance system seems a lot better than mavic's. That looked like a close call but not an aggressive move.

It didn't see you, then saw you, then avoided you, all before you could even touch the sticks, its amazing, really.

Wow! That's bird made an amazing dive. Too bad he didn't notice the Mavic a bit earlier but it looks like all ended well.

Hang a plastic owl under the Mavic to fend off birds!
