Penguin Activity Summary 01.31-02.01.2016

The cams have broken down again, but I'm posting what images I have at the moment. Once they are fixed, I'll begin posting anew. Take heart... we should be able to see our chicks shed their baby feathers and begin their lives as juvie penguins, ready for the sea very soon. Those Argentine guys have been wonderful in keeping the cams going and I can't thank them enough for allowing us to watch this year's chicks hatch and mature!

Since there are now so few penguins at Site 2, I have elected to not summarize them. Instead, the far cam on Site 1 takes images of the chicks gathering place or as it's normally called, the creche. Also, I've noticed that the adults all leave to feed and the pair who have late chicks in the Near cam image are left to babysit. 

I'm very concerned at the lateness of those aforementioned chicks. They're so small and they were hatched a month behind the rest of the chicks. Let's keep an eye on them and hope that they both have time to mature before they all leave in the fall.

Due to the cameras down on Site 1 for 5 days, there were no images to share for those dates. Sorry. Wouldn't you know it? The chicks hatched out on Christmas Eve (I named them Chris and Eve) and then boom, the cameras go down. They're back up and you won't believe how much those chicks have grown when you see the next installment. Soooooo, stay tuned. Chicks have arrived!!!!

Good News and Bad News....

On Christmas Eve, one of our chicks began hatching, so welcome to the world, little Chris!

Now the bad news... the cameras stopped working at Site 1. OH NO! Not good timing. And here we've waited so long just to see a chick. 

If the guys at the station are watching, please help!  

In the meantime, have a great Christmas, and I'll be reporting back here later today.
