Polly wants a camera: Thieving parrot captures aerial view of national park after stealing GoPro

A thieving parrot offered a remarkable birds-eye view of a national park in New Zealand after picking up a GoPro camera and flying off.

A family were having a rest during a trek when the parrot was filmed swooping down, picking up the device, and making a swift getaway.

The camera kept on filming as the bird flew high above the tree-covered hills of the Fiordland National Park in Te Anau.

The feathered fiend was a kea parrot, a species which is native to the park and known for its curiosity.

After the brief aerial tour, it placed the camera down on the ground and gave it a close inspection before losing interest and flying off.

A young boy then shouted “found it” as he came to collect the borrowed camera.
