Macaroni Penguin at The Snares

Postby Paul Sagar » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:49 pm

Just back from 11 days at The Snares where a macaroni penguin was in moult at the penguin landing rocks in Boat Harbour, North East Island. Other unusual birds recorded during our stay were 1 juvenile erect-crested penguin (also in moult), 2 white-faced herons and 2 black shags. Full list of birds seen will be posted on eBird shortly.
