Magellanic Penguins

Spheniscus magellanicus


Really quite interesting. These penguins make indentations in the sandy/pebbled soil to make their nests. Sometimes they are lucky enought to find an area where it is sheltered. All the nesting sites I have seen are within 200 meters of the ocean. The waddle back and forth to the sea taking turns feeding while one buards the nest and egg(s).
