Fiordland crested penguin, Castlepoint

Postby Colin Miskelly » Fri Mar 03, 2017 4:55 pm

Hi all

Wairarapa DOC staff have provided images of a very skinny pre-moult Fiordland crested penguin retrieved from Castlepoint today. It has been taken into care, as it clearly did not have the reserves required to survive the moulting fast.

Cheers
Colin
