Capturing a bird’s-eye-view from a drone is something that many want to try, however, imagine a bird doing that for you.

An undated video of a parrot grabbing a person’s phone and flying away with it has gone viral on social media. The clip, which was shared on Twitter by user @fred035schultz, features a person running behind a parrot as it claws the phone and flies away.

“Parrot takes the phone on a fantastic trip,” wrote Schultz while sharing the 1.49-minute clip that captured the view of the neighbourhood that the bird flew over. In the viral clip, which has now garnered over 5 lakh views, people can also be heard calling out to the bird.

The clip concludes with the bird finally halting on top of a car. Since being shared online, the clip has prompted an avalanche of reactions on social media with many quite amused with the parrot. Some even called the bird an “eco-friendly” drone.

However, others questioned the authenticity of the clip. “It’s 100% animation. Pause and look at the bird wings. They look cut out with harsh edges – there’s no real motion blur. Shadows on the ground and buildings are too sharp. The leaves on the trees don’t have real texture. It all looks flat. Movement is also extremely unrealistic,” wrote a user.

Some also commented on the parrot returning to the same location assuming that it was probably domesticated.
