Royal Penguins

Royal penguins breed only on Macquarie Island in large, dense colonies. They're named for the crestlike yellow feathers on their heads.
Size: About 23 inches tall and 9 lbs.
Spotworthy: Though slightly smaller, Royal penguins are very similar in appearance to Macaroni penguins – the main distinguishing feature is their predominately white chins and faces (while those of Macaronis are mostly black).
