King Penguin Chick

February 23, 2006 King Penguin chick

St, Andrews Harbor on South Georgia Island is home to over 150,000 nesting pairs of King Penguins! As far as the eye can reach there are penguins surrounding us. Parents on eggs, parents feeding newborn chicks, and older “okum boy” chicks all wandering around the edges of the colony. We even encounter a rare melanistic (black) King Penguin.
