King Penguins are the most stunning and striking birds. I have had the privilege of working alongside enormous colonies of these fascinating penguins on South Georgia. I will always remember the deafening noise that a large colony emmits, with the adults calling and the chicks whistling. The chicks are infinitely curious, and will investigate your boots, pockets and any equipment you may have lying around. They are endearing brown fluffy balls of character. King Penguins are a delight to observe, both the regal adults with their bright orange and yellow ear patches and neck, and the characterful chicks, full of youthful curiosity.
