Penguin Watch Talk
Gentoo penguins at a chinstrap site.
I think there is a seal in the water.
Racing back home.
I don't even want to try guessing what that thing in the water is.
Good head angle of garden's favorite penguin.
necks? I assumed those were the sides of the penguins underwater with one wing hanging out 😒
Something interesting must be happening in the sky behind the camera.
This one might also be good to compare with: APZ000age6
Seal posing as the little mermaid.
Flock of penguins swimming.
I know that area is "shallow" but you have to remember that it is further away from the camera than it looks. I vote whale.
That fin is about two penguins tall if you compare it to their size when they are down there. I don't think that is small for an orca.
Repeated? I thought this picture looked familiar, so I looked back a bit and found this: APZ00090qu
Perfect seathbill camouflage.
Rare sight: penguin reflected in the water.
is there another bird on the top right of the rock? I can't tell if it's a penguin or not.
Uh oh, the road ahead is blocked.
It's like trying to find Waldo.
Huge seals or rocks? I haven't seen enough pictures of this site to compare.
Gentoos and chinstraps together.
Mysterious black dot on the ice.
Mating behaviour at the left, human at the right.
I have always wondered, why are some pictures black and white?
why are some pictures black and white?
Possible seal/s at the back - top left.
Possibly two seals in the back.
I meant excited in the human sense of the word :p
This penguin looks excited.
One rebel penguin stands looking to the other side.
This place never looked so orange.
is that a seal in the back?
Impeccably clean penguins.
Pretty sure I could pick up all of the feathers and build a new penguin.
Possible seal/s at the back around the middle. I can't tell.
Does this mean that the leucistic chick (Lucy) is a female? I am curious about how you could tell the gender if that is the case. Thanks.
The black sun.
Possible seals on the ice.
it is a seal! Apparently they like to frequent this site: APZ0009rdw, APZ0009qxv
Looks like they really like hanging out here APZ0009qxv
Three seals taking over the nesting site.
Something in the water?
Gentoo trying to disguise as a chinstrap.
Isn't it too soon in the year for mating behaviour?
This makes me want to step in with my vacuum cleaner.
wow look how close that seal is
That seal lives there.
Something in the water (left).
30 minutes before: APZ00093d8
I know I look too much into what is in the water 😒 Maybe it is just ice, but it looks strangely symmetric and dark to me.
Two dead chicks?
Seal getting closer.
They are making a penguin pyramid of three levels in the back. It looks hilarious.
Feeding a chick.
Possible human leg on the ice and zodiac at the edge of the picture.
Covered in powdered sugar.
Found one of an hour earlier: APZ00098we
Next/under the penguin with the beak open, is that the carcass of a dead penguin?
To the left of the icebergs, right under the tracks you see on the snow.
Fishing expedition comes back home.
"All of these pebbles for me? 😄"
It might be an optical illusion/rock, but it looks like a penguin/other animal swimming underwater at the top left.
I think there is a seal in the back, and possibly a dead penguin in the middle?
Very strange looking penguin or other animal on the right top corner of the rock. There also seems to be some black and white under water.
"Lets stay back here for a bit longer, something really smells up there"
Thank you Avast. I was hoping you could tell me what it was 😛
2 possible penguins on thick ice.
I think there is a penguin peek a booing out of the water. Oh wait, it might also be a skua or a whale or a fish 😦 I never get it right.
Something in the water at the left of the image? It could just be ice but it looks weird.
More pictures from the same day (2016-01-11): APZ00094dj, APZ00094ed
Extreme beak contorsion to get bug on shoulder.
Is there a way to remove a picture from my favorites?
"Where did all the water go?" "No worries, I'll go find it"
Trying to hide mating behaviour from the camera.
Look at the 5 penguins to the right. Never seen penguins with eyes open so wide 😛
Moby? 😮 I only see ice on the water, but then again, I am terrible at identifying things in the water.
Pretty tracks in the deep snow.
Penguins in the water. Maybe?
Gentoos running on the ice.
Army of gentoo chicks getting ready to attack!!
Mating behaviour of gentoos
Found it 😃 APZ00094ei
What is so special about 11 Jan 2016? 😮
Something similar happens in another rookery: APZ00063qh, APZ00061p8, APZ0005j9i
Still, you can see a penguin resting on it on later dates: Image APZ0006s5x, Image APZ0006qtb, Image APZ0006mzi, Image APZ0006jnl
I have noticed this empty nest failed at some point around the end of december 😦 and it starts getting smaller during january.
Dark muddy feet
"Lets have a stare competition, whoever falls asleep first loses"
Pebble thief or pebble donator? Hard to tell.
Extra clean and shiny penguins. Fresh from the water?
Pretty sure this rookery is haunted by a penguin ghost.
(Checking old posts from my profile page now to make sure I didn't miss any messages - that is the reason of the delay in my reply).
Thank you Avast, I knew that. I just thought that the position of the penguin to the right made it's rib cage look oddly shaped.
I see two eggs next to a nest in the middle, could be rocks, are they abandoned eggs?
"Welcome to my house"
"I can fly at night, let me show you"
The water is completely still.
Last goofy penguin comment I make tonight, I promise 😃
"I do my little turn on the catwalk, yeah on the penguinwalk on the the penguinwalk yeah"
You take a picture of the penguins and the penguins take a picture of you.
"Haven't you heard? the best pebbles are at the bottom of the sea. Go get them! I'll look after the pebbles in your nest while you are gone"
Adelie penguins mating
haha we replied the same thing at the same time :p
These are not chicks, they are adult Adelie penguins (except for the one at the bottom: that is a gentoo penguin).
Sometimes penguins can't feed/take care of more than one chick at a time, so they abandon the less fat one to their death.
Coming out of the snow coffins.
Yes, that is mating behaviour.
Thank you garden and Avast, you are right, the perspective doesn't match.
Maybe it's not a penguin, I don't know. But if you look it up online,you can find lots of pictures of penguins jumping at very high angles.
I am trying really hard to see another bird. But I still see just a penguin jumping out of the water 😒
Shocked to find a penguin jumping out of the water in the back. Do you see it too?
I took a breath before counting all of these. Love how two of them in the front are lying down with the feet sticking out :p
I can almost smell it.
Penguin tracks on the ice?
One of them is not a penguin 😛
"Your turn to sit on the eggs"
Did some of them slide down? I like to think so.
There is something in the water. Too big to be a penguin I think. Interested in reading what you think that is.
Yes, just checked. It was the exact same image with the same image number. I got it right after I saw this one for the first time.
Wanted to let you guys know, that I got this picture #repeated
Thank you for showing me the other picture garden. I was very surprised by the perspective, hadn't realized how far away the ice really was.
Looks like one of them fell flat on their stomach during the walk 😃
First time I see penguins on the ice like that 😃
Paths on the snow
Pillow fighter penguins
Penguin with dark feet
I can't tell if the bird at the right and back of the image is a chick or just a bird.
Penguin getting a free ride from another penguin. Could also just be mating behaviour 😃
This is the picture number 1200 I classify 😄
Learned a lot about penguins in the process
Sign I should probably rest my eyes now. Good night.
Thanks cold, you are right. Very dirty. It seems obvious now, but the colors made me think there could be another animal in the middle
I don't know what that thing in the middle is
Did someone have an odd shaped penguin collection?
Look at all of that green poop!
Is it just me or does the beak of the penguin close to the camera look really messed up?
what bird do you think that is?
There is a gentoo in the front of the picture, does it have a chick? I knew they visited each others colonies but didn't know they nested
do penguins ever feel cold?
At the bottom of the image there is a shadow of a penguin that didn't make it into the picture, should I mark those? I did 😒
Thank you garden, I didn't know that.
Next time I see a moulting penguin I'll throw him a fish.
Moulting in the dark
It is okay, but you shouldn't mark those in the future.
Looks like some of the chicks are starting to moult, penguin puberty?
I added this to my favorites but I haven't started any collections so far. Thank you!
Moulting penguins, footsteps and an intruder.
2 penguins in the water? It is hard to tell but I compared with other pictures and there are no rocks there
they like they can hashtag it themselves and no need to start a hashtag debate for every picture
hashtag option for volunteers, just disable the # in the comments. They are going to go through the mods anyway and if they see something
@avastmh I am glad you added this information on the first parragraph.This might seem a bit extreme, but I think you should remove the
and "say something, or mark with a #hashtag" to "say something"
Just and idea, how about changing the list of preferred hashtags to "List of penguin actions you should look out for and point out to us"
There is a list of preferred hashtags but we are not supposed to use them? I don't understand, is using hashtags bad?
Makes sense, thank you for all of the information!
And also, are you saying they are marching? 😃 I already deleted the hashtag. Thank you for replying, I am liking PW very much.
Sorry, just to be clear, the only way to see if there is a message is clicking on each image on the "recent object comments" section?
Thanks, glad to know one is not murdering the other.
Good, thanks. I think that is what I tagged it as. What should I do if an animal that is not in the "other" list is on a picture?
a comment on a picture I already commented on? I just saw your comment by chance looking at how the forums worked
Sorry, I saw them in a line going all in the same direction and thought it was marching. Is there a way to get notified when someone writes
Black bird around the top right. Didn't find the name of the bird in "other", marked it anyway.
one of them is standing on the others back #behaviour
black and white bird in the middle/back of the image, it almost looks like a penguin but I don't think it is, I tagged it as "other"
right bottom corner #pebbler
#moulting - king penguin in the bottom left corner
