It turns out that striated caracaras make pretty good videographers.

One of them, intrigued by an egg-cam, captured this amazing video from the Falkland Islands—the first-ever aerial footage of a rockhopper penguin colony shot by a flying bird.

The wild bird stole a camera planted by a team from John Dower Productions, a company that specializes in making wildlife films. The clip is part of the company’s new series, Penguins—Spy in the Huddle.
