Pegnuins everywhere, thousands of them.
Returning to Penninsula Valdes, I returned to visit a penguin colony and and did I ever see penguins.
Funny thing when I tell Argentinos that I saw penguins, they all say the same thing.. small ones...
Well for me watching nesting penguins is a rush. There were thousands of penguins, all of whom were completely unpreturbed by camera toting gawking tourists.
It was amazing. For sure if this "penquineria" was in Canada there would be fences, limits, restrictions, probably for the better, considering. However, the magellanic penguins seem to be doing fine.
Some interesting things about these fellows; they swim ( or is it fly) in the water at 70 kilomters per hour... amazing huh! and once breeding is done, parents an chicks swim about 6000 kms to and from their breeding grounds. They breed for life.
However, if something goes wrong the female will look for another male with a better nesting site.. ahhh it's all about the home security.
