IrishEyes, the gentoos you watched (yellow circle, red arrow) are adults.
The 3 or 4 hatched chicks at the basement may be just 2-3 days old!

Congratulations Gabi.. on your TA Badge........Clapping

HI everyone... Ferenz, Gabi and all.............

I watched the March of the Penguins on TV last night..... incredible documentary and i learned so much.... i was fascinated... I had no idea that the Males took over the incubation of the eggs after the Females laid them...



Hi Bev are you sure that only Gentoo penguins male incubate the eggs? Usually both male and female share the incubation. Studies have shown that both took turns in breeding in a rhythm of two days, Martin Grund says !
Gentoo penguins do not march.



I think you mean Emperor penguins which do not have nests

Thanks, Ferenz and Gabi! I must admit I also know very little about penguins, and didn't realize until quite recently that there were so many types of penguins. When I first watched this cam, I thought Gentoo was where the cam was, not the type of penguins. very embarrassed But I am learning! Nodding yes

Hi Ferenz and Bev

Perfect description of Ferenz . Ferenz , thank you therefor.
The penguins on the pictures are looking to the stormy sea. You can see the high waves .
Did you know that the nests of the Gentoo penguins consist of a few thousend pebbles? I´m just working on a story with basic informations about the Gentoo penguin. Please look to page 1 . Wink
