    When you can't tell them apart, mark them as adults please. Check out the FAQs for the signs of chicks/adults for each species.

    Hi @BZW77 I don't know where in the top left to look for him, but there is no human visible, just rocks and penguins.

    To help us remember the distinctions between each species' adults and chicks, there's a series of photos underneath each Classification image.

    Finally, it's helpful to study photos in the "Recent" section (top of page). You'll have the benefit of acquired experience and helpful hints.

    In this photo, some are moulting- a tricky time even for scientists! When in doubt which it is, choose adult. The FAQs really will help!
