Bird Steals 'Egg Cam' And Films Breathtaking Aerial Shots Of Penguin Colony

Filed under: BirdsAmazingPenguin

A falcon stole an egg shaped hidden camera and took it out to get some amazing shots!

This is so cool! And it all happened by chance!

A falcon was scavenging near a colony of penguins when he spotted a lone egg.

All the other eggs had hatched so this was a rare delicacy!

Except there was a reason it was the only egg left…

It was an egg shaped camera! It captured all sorts of incredible video of the falcon rolling the egg around.

Until the bird actually picked up the egg in its talons and shot a breathtaking aerial view of the penguin colony as he flew over them.

This bird is a pretty darn good cameraman!

Check out the incrediballs footage AFTER THE JUMP!!

San Jose City Hall Falcon Dies Before She Learned How To Fly

There is sad news from city hall.

The famous family of falcons that reside on the ledges of San Jose City Hall have suffered a loss today.

Unita, the only female falcon to be born earlier this year on the 18th floor ledge of City Hall, has died.

She was 40 days old.

"It takes equal measures of luck, skill and strength to survive out there," said Glenn Stewart, a biologist with the UC Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group, who monitors the peregrine falcons born in the Bay Area. "This was purely bad luck."

Unita is survived by her three brothers: Hermes, Shadow and Ahote, and her parents, Clara and Esteban Colbert.

To mourn with the family click HERE and see them on live video stream.

RIP.

Diamond Studded Falcon Hoods?

picture-flhood4jb.jpg

This seems a little cruel to us!

Italian jewelry house Tiroler Goldschmied has a collection of diamond studded falcon hoods (above) in the works for this year's Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition!

The equipment, which is apparently used by falconers to calm the birds, will be made of exceptionally thin leather and decorated with gems, and will be priced between €5,000 - €40,000!

But what about those poor birdies! Won't all those diamonds hurt their heads?
