During our stay on the Otago Peninsula area of New Zealand, Diana and I went on a tour to see Yellow-eyed Penguins. We were taken to some private land which is being managed to provide the kind of habitat they require. Like other Penguin species, these birds spend a lot of time in the ocean fishing for their meals. Their nests are hidden in the scrubby thickets along the shore. Most Penguins nest in large colonies but the Yellow-eyed Penguin prefers to have its nest out of sight of other Penguins. We were taken to a blind (or “hide,” as they call it in New Zealand) where we saw the Penguins coming ashore and hopping up the hill over the rocks. As we were leaving, this one came ashore and walked right past us.
