    What species or name does this have? Gold crown feathers are new to me,,,,as is the large grass plants.

    Good observation, Karincat. These are #Macaroni penguins, a species of crested penguins similar to and a bit larger than the #Rockhoppers we more often see in these images.

    Last season we counted Rockhoppers on a cliff edge rookery, where we saw grass tussocks like these and also saw two visiting Macaronis.

    Hey gardenmaeve - do you think we might have a visiting rockhopper here? 😄

    I think they were the Magellanics? Wasn't it Candy who was the Macaroni - and Jacques too? 😃

    Waldo and Wanda were called that because of the "glasses" markings around their eyes
