Bird Steals Camera and Captures Amazing Aerial Footage of Penguin Colony

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a penguin? The creators of the BBC series “Penguins – Spy in the Huddle” have attempted to capture the experience, using 50 spy cameras to get up close and personal with penguins all over the world. What they didn’t expect, however, was for nature to take the filming into its own hands. In this clip, a Striated Caracara is so fascinated by an egg-shaped spycam that it takes it in its talons and flies off:

The resulting footage, a literal bird’s-eye view, is the first ever aerial footage of a penguin colony shot by a bird. Eventually, the caracara loses its grip on the egg cam, but it soon piques the interest of a pair of turkey vultures.

A still from the brief but breathtaking footage captured by the airborne egg cam.

This unexpected development was no doubt exciting for the filmmakers. Perhaps as the birds become more and more used to the spy cameras in their midst, the cameras will have even more airborne adventures, giving us footage unlike any that has been captured by humans.
