Chinstrap Penguins

The Chinstrap penguin is the second most abundant Antarctic/subantarctic penguin (after the Macaroni), mainly concentrated in vast colonies along the coast of South Orkneys, South Shetlands, and South Sandwich Islands.
Size: About 27 inches tall and 9 lbs.
Spotworthy: This species can be recognized by the narrow band of black feathers that gives it a distinctive, thin black line that extends from ear to ear, just below the chin and the cheeks – wonder how it got that name, huh?!
