Magellanic Penguins ~ Punta Arenas, Chile by 


Photograph of the Magellanic Penguins was taken at the Otway Sound one hour from Punta Arenas, Chile, South America. This is where they have there burrows or nest site.

We walked roughly one mile along an exposed uneven shoreline path to see where the penguin burrows. From there we continued on to see the penguins walking from their burrows to the coast where they feed.

Magellanic Penguins are medium-sized penguins which grow to be 24–30 in tall and weigh between 5.9-14.3 lbs.

    A sweet capture Lucinda! We’ve visited these guys on two trips to Chile but it has always been at dusk and light for photography was difficult! I’m curious to know what time of day this was?

  • Krys thank you very much for your wonderful comments. Looking at the photo of the penguins walking to the beach and looking at the length of their shadows I think the time was mid morning. I do recall that it was very windy and cold but sunny.
