King Penguins

Nonmigratory King penguins breed on seven subantarctic island groups with large populations on the Falkland Islands, Macquarie Islands, Heard Island, Iles Crozet, and Marion island.
Size: About 30 inches tall and 20 to 30 lbs.
Spotworthy: Distinctive features of these birds include a silvery-grey back with a blackish-brown head decorated with striking ear patches of bright golden-orange feathers. They can be identified by the orange coloring on their breasts, more slender bodies, and longer bills than the Emperor penguin.
