or is it 40000 miles per year

Plus this is before gene therapy, RNAi, RNA activation and genetic engineering

Birds of prey can fly carrying rodents.

Sounds like a pretty crude form of control, but maybe you could wire in a gps device and have a guided pidgiebot. Instead of extracting visual info directly from birdbrain, a small camera could perhaps be attached or implanted. This might be more practical in the nearterm than some of the DARPA uUAVs, but the cost for both is too high to compare with the transformative potential of MM-based mega-surveillance systems.
