Yes because most helicopters chase birds with their infra-red equipment...
Clearly helicopter pilots and crew haven't seen a bird before..

Santo Domingo.- United States Homeland Security Dept. has agreed to use unmanned planes "drones” to patrol the Mona Pass, as a way to fight the traffic of drugs and weapons from cyberspace, Puerto Rico’s elnuevodia.com reports Monday. One of those planes, capable of prolonged flight at varying heights, may been temporarily assigned to patrols between the airport at the former Ramey Air Force Base Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic, the outlet said.

The video seems legit.
And seems that the pilot, shocked by the encounter, watch again the footage at his home...
This video was uploaded to YouTube by José Martínez, a member of the Puerto Rican Research Group. He explains that the video was shot by a helicopter from Rafael Hernandez International Airport, which was formerly a United States Air Force base called Ramey Air Force Base (This base was named after Brigadier General Howard Knox Ramey, and not after General Roger Ramey as some believe. Roger Ramey is the infamous general who announced to the world that what was recovered in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 was simply a weather balloon). Several federal agencies are currently housed at the Rafael Hernandez International Airport.
According to the website Historias Ufologicas en Puerto Rico y el Exterior, “In the video you can see how the object moves very quickly. In one part of the video you can see how the object is thrown to the sea at extreme speed,” and when it comes back out of the sea, there are “two objects on the screen.”
Researchers reportedly conferred with authorities from the Puerto Rico Joint Forces of Rapid Action (FURA), a division of the state police of Puerto Rico that coordinates operations between Puerto Rico police and U.S. federal agencies. These authorities confirmed that the UFO video was taken by a camera aboard a Black Hawk helicopter. The website asserts that “this proves that federal agencies in Puerto Rico have knowledge of the presence ovnis-extraterrestre and surveillance in the [hottest areas of] Puerto Rico are being monitored.”
When asked by YouTube viewers for more information about this video showing UFOs in Puerto Rico, Martínez responded by saying that, in order to protect the identity of his federal agency sources at the airport, he “cannot give more details.”

Did anyone else notice the flash/glitch just before when the object disappears and reappears with another object? I wonder what's that about.
The doubling of the object is a bit strange too.

It does not look like the UFO splashed into the water. It looks like it disappears and then reappears, like it was cloaking or something.

I'm not sure what to think but I don't think the footage was taken from a helicopter. Could be from somewhere up a mountain or similar? The sounds in the background suggest that it's inside a building of some sort. It even sounds like there's a TV on in the background.
As for the object, I'll have to leave that to people who are much more intelligent than me.
