A Troop of Crested "Maccaroni" or Rock-Hopper Penguins Nesting Under the Shade of Tussock of Trees
This is a troop of crested "Maccaroni" or Rock-hopper penguins nesting "under the shade of tussocks of grass." The parents sit nearby their eggs which lie in depressions in the bare earth. "This penguin is bluish-black with white breast and belly, and a fine orange crest on each side of the crown, from which a broad golden streak passes over the eye to the base of the maxilla.". -A. H. Evans, 1900.
