    Kann es sein, dass in der Mitte rechts zwischen den Pinguinen gerade ein grosser brauner Vogel wegfliegt??

    Ja, das ist richtig. Das ist ein Riesen südlichen Petrel. Es ist auf der Liste der "Others". Sie fressen Pinguine, wenn möglich. Ich sehe auch zwei Kelp Möwen. Gute Beobachtung!

    Stinu asks about the large brown bird flying off in the middle of the night. It is a #Southern #Giant #petrel. (Top right, in front of the far, dark brown line of chicks.)

    It eats penguins when it can, and it's on the list of "Other" birds. Also on the "Other" list are two #Kelp #gulls, scavengers

    They feed on their chicks or eggs only, as far as I know.

    😃 To clarify: They scavenge penguin and any other available carrion (seals, whales, etc.), and also kill and eat penguin chicks and eggs.
