Magellanic Penguins

Went to Gypsy Cove this evening to see the Magellanic Penguins. The late afternoon, early evening is the best time to see the Magellanic Penguins as adult birds are returning from sea to feed the chicks. The chicks are often out of the burrows waiting for the returning parent.

            

     

   

They seem to have had a good year as most pairs have two large, well fed chicks.
