    Young chicks under those wonderful belly flaps, with dubious neighbour sheathbill resting easy.

    Don't penguins chase off predators, or is the white bird not a threat to the chicks?

    They have to stay in the nest on their eggs/chicks - if they followed the Sheathbill, it could flight to the unprotected nest and take the treasure.

    But they do attack it with their bills when it gets close enough. Depends on how many penguins are in the rookery and how big the chicks are
