The footage, likely taken as part of the "Spy in the Huddle" series, was posted to Downer's YouTube page Friday.

"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," the YouTube description said.

At the time of publication, the video boasted just over 10,000 views on YouTube, but had garnered rave reviews.
