Magellanic Penguin Pair in Their Nesting Burrow

Carole-Anne

Campbelltown, Australia

Artist's Description

Magellanic Penguins, Spheniscus magellanicus, are the only Falkland penguins to nest in burrows. Two eggs of equal size are laid during October, and chicks fledge in late January. Chicks do not form creches. During incubation adults may travel up to 500km to forage, but when the chicks hatch they generally remain within 30km of the nest. Carcass Island, the Falklands. Jackass Penguins is the local name.
