marconi Penguin

By StevenBest  
Macaroni penguins have a plume easy to identify when compared with other crested penguins. They have a yellow-orange crest on its head that start between their eyes and extend through their head in a V-shaped form. They have bright red eyes, and their beak is thick and orange, but on each side a fleshy pink area is visible. Their large paws are light pink.

Their habitat is usually mountains and snow-covered rocky areas with little vegetation or soil. When inhabiting warmer areas, dirt, mud or vegetation may cover the surface of the land where they live. Therefore, they can walk and jump over large slippery rocks that rise in the costs without a problem.
Their largest colonies locate on islands such as South Georgia, Kerguelen, Heard, McDonald, Crozet and Marion Islands.
