Adult Magellanic Penguin, Spheniscus magellanicus, on the beach having just returned from fishing, Carcass Island in the Falkland Islands.
The penguins will return to their nesting burrows on the grasslands above the beach. Carcass Island, the Falklands. Jackass Penguins is the local name. The Magellanic Penguin is the most numerous of the Spheniscus penguins. Its nearest relatives are the African, the Humboldt and the Galápagos Penguins. The Magellanic penguin was named after Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who spotted the birds in 1520.
They breed in coastal Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands.
