Bird Steals 'Egg Camera', Films Penguin Colony From Air (VIDEO)

A fascinating aerial perspective of a penguin colony has surfaced online recently from the most unlikely of videographers: a camera-snatching bird!

The incredible footage was posted by John Downer Productions and will be included in the BBC series "Penguins - Spy in the Huddle." Downer writes:

A striated caracara, intrigued by our spy egg-cam, decides to fly off with our camera but in the process captures the first ever aerial footage of a rockhopper penguin colony shot by a flying bird.

From what we've seen so far, we're thinking that this bird has a real future as a professional cameraman, err, camerabird! If you'd like to learn more about the upcoming series, you can visit the John Downer Productions website here.
