Apparently, someone had broken the video down to prove it is a hoax. 

"Many YouTube commenters have been skeptical of this ”Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” video. The best proof coming from YouTube user Cyatek who breaks the video down pointing out the computer effects in the babies descent back to Earth and the lack of shadow in some frames."
