Surrounded by Acres of … Penguins!

Bertha Beach is the home of Gentoo Penguins.  Some look a little rough, they are in the middle of their annual molt.  They have finished fledging their chicks, took a swim out to feed and now have to sit very still, conserving energy for three weeks when they will have enough insulation to again go out and feed.

This tall and sleek King Penguin is a pioneer, looking to find new breeding grounds.  According to Dr. Peter Carey Kings often mingle with Gentoo.

These Magellanic Penguins are caring for their chicks.
