    And why is that small chick stood on its own? Well nature is tough and will have to endure these sights on the way to rescuing the penguins

    Seems the chick was with a parent the day before: https://talk.penguinwatch.org/#/subjects/APZ0009546

    If 1 chick dies, would parents abandon the other? Two days earlier the nest had 2 chicks (explains where 1 of the dead came) from. https://www.penguinwatch.org/#/classify

    Usually, no, the surviving chick would get as much food as the two chicks would have gotten.

    We know so little of the situation- just the brief glimpses we see. I'm following one of the other nests, so I'm keeping a collection of many images for the site.

    Let's be watchful but not worry. All this is over and done with as far as the penguins are concerned. 😉
