NBC 5's network of skycams make for beautiful backdrops to NBC 5's newscasts and often help tell the story of weather conditions across Dallas and Fort Worth, but once in a while they capture nature.
Viewer Shane Young alerted us to birds that flew by the Dallas skycam behind Brian Curtis during NBC 5 First at Four on Tuesday.
Young thought it might be an eagle. We're not sure, but slowing the video down, we see three birds -- the first definitely having white feathers, the second having variegated colors and the third being too fast to identify.
The latest news from around North Texas.
NBC 5 viewers have always been observant when it comes to the skycams, and sometimes you just can't miss what flies in front of the camera. One of our favorite clips shows Meteorologist Grant Johnston's reaction to a wasp buzzing the Fort Worth skycam.
A car spinning out on icy roads on Woodall Rodgers in Dallas.
Storm clouds moving in.
And Fourth of July fireworks over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
Also spotted -- a balloon floating up as we checked out a fire on the horizon.
