Macaroni Penguins

Most abundant of all the world's penguins, the Macaroni penguins inhabit the maritime Antarctic and subantarctic regions with large breeding populations found on South Georgia Island and other area islands including Heard and Marion Islands.
Size: About 25 inches tall and 11 lbs.
Spotworthy: Very similar to their crested cousins, Macaroni penguins are larger and can be distinguished by their yellow-orange tassels that begin with a broad band across the forehead meeting right between their eyes and their mostly black faces.
