    Now we know that an African Swallow can carry a coconut if he grasps it by the husk. Obvious video proof of a great scientific discovery.

    That bird is going to regret showing his face on the camera. You NEVER show your face on the security camera!!

    I'm pretty sure that's actually a video created by GoPro.

    I like to imagine that the owner climbed the wall to raid the bird nest... but it's likely just marketing. Still funny.

    Priceless!

    That is impressive. Those cameras aren't all that light. and wow, that seagull even got a good grip on all that slick curved plastic.


    What adds to this video is that dark feeling of the castle.

    Hitchcock would be proud....by the way, where is his cameo?

    its not a question of where he grips it. its a simple question of weight ratios. a five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut. a 6oz camera is a different story.

    It was a video project. Here's an interview with the guy who did it. Translation in the comments says he smeared the camera with fat to attract the seagulls, and attached a GPS tracker.

    Why "fake"? The Seagull did actually take the camera and fly away with it. It's not CG, nothing fake about it.
    The fact that it was done on purpose by baiting the camera is no secret, in fact there is a link to an interview where film maker explains it all, right there when you watch the clip. He also says it took numerous tries to get good footage.

    Pretty cool idea.
