Pigeons have been used for areal photography in the past [Random Knowledge #37]
posted April 3 2013 19:16.20 by Giorgos Lazaridis

The first aerial photography ever was taken by James Wallace Black back in 1858 using a balloon. But in 1907, a German apothecary named Julius Neubronner took it a step further and invented the pigeon photography! He also had been using pigeons to deliver medications.

The apparatus was a lightweight aluminum breast harness with a time-delayed miniature camera. His patent application was initially rejected.
