  1. I just loved this post, Ashley! There’s something about penguins that’s so fascinating and beautiful and adorable, your photos and videos just made my day. I’ve always enjoyed spending a long time at their big living area at the Maryland Baltimore Zoo, watching them swim under the water. They can be quite entertaining!

  2. I loved reading about these little fairy penguins so much. I had no idea that any penguins used burrows….and how sweet that the new babes come out calling for their parents. So sad they are almost extinct, such cute creatures! I loved the videos, thanks so much for sharing!

    • Thanks Jen, they are such cute and vulnerable little creatures, and years ago I remember showing my children , when they were very young the young penguins standing at the burrow entrance waiting for their parent at sunset. Each parent identifying the call of its baby. It is sad that many of our next generation will never see this, and the many penguins we once had.
