Fiordland Crested Penguin 5

Fiordland Crested Penguin 5

The Fiordland Crested Penguin (Eudyptes pachyrhynchus), also known as Tawaki (Maori), is a species of crested penguin from New Zealand. It breeds along the Fiordland coast and its outlying islands as well as on Stewart Island/Rakiura. The most timid of the crested penguins, the Fiordland crested penguin stands about 40cm and weighs around 4kg. They breed in the rainforests along the rugged coastline of New Zealand's Fiordland and Stewart Island, nesting individually, or in loose colonies, close to the coast. Nest sites are in caves, under overhangs, at the base of trees or in dense vegetation.
