At First I Couldn’t Tell What This Was. But Then I Looked Closer And… OMG.

Here are a few amazing aerial photographs taken of a King Penguin colony that live in South Georgia Island. The size of this colony is mind-blowing to say the least. South Georgia Island is located below South America and is a British colony near the Falkland Islands.

This looks to be the world’s largest nursery. King penguins come here to breed and raise their young. They huddle tightly together to keep their young from freezing in the very harsh climate of the South Atlantic. The chicks are covered in fluffy brown feathers making them stand out among the crowd of tuxedos. Take a look at the images below and notice the brown stripes. The stripes are actually thousands of chicks being protected from the freezing temperatures and high winds.

South Georgia Island is home to hundreds of thousands of King Penguins and is located near the Falkland Islands. 

The parents care for their baby chicks for up to three weeks around the clock. After that, they leave for 2 or 3 days at a time to retrieve food for their young. Can you imagine trying to find your baby in this crowd? To see a baby penguin before it is even born click here.
