A sunny morning at the rookery

Okay, enough of that. Let's go eat!

Gentoo Rookery Update

 The evening gathering
 Big arse photobomb!
 In a hurry?
 Basking in the sunlight
 Never miss an opp for a nap
A gif I made that shows the preening that took place over a 2 hour period.

Rookery Update

 Dashing through the snow...
 FINALLY! Caught one breeding. Better late than never.
 The new camera is working great and look at that sunset!
 Everyone seems calm and peaceful
 Up close and personal. Somebody has a dirty belly. :-)
 After hours. Snugged in for the night.
At night with the station lights. The image isn't too clear, but you get to see them at night.

All Cams are Up and Working!

This is a shout out and a big thank you to the guys at Gars O'Higgins Station for braving the cold and getting all the cams online. We couldn't enjoy the season of the penguin without your diligence, so thank you a million times over!  Stay safe!

Gentoo Rookery Update (Images)

Snow descended upon the rookery two days ago, but the Gentoos snuggled in and slept through most of the event.

 Here is our couple we will be watching the closest.

 All fluffed up and toasty warm.

 The colony.

 Mr. Photobomb.

 Happy as heck to be here!

This is a gif I made of of one penguin during the recent snowstorm. Several hours passed within this image.
