Black-browed albatross, courtship and mutual preening behavior between two mated adults on the nest, Steeple Jason Island breeding colony.  Black-browed albatrosses begin breeding at about 10 years, and lay a single egg each season, Thalassarche melanophrys Black-browed albatross, feeding its chick on the nest by regurgitating food it was swallowed while foraging at sea, Steeple Jason Island breeding colony.  The single egg is laid in September or October.  Incubation takes 68 to 71 days, after which the chick is tended alternately by both adults until it fledges about 120 days later, Thalassarche melanophrys Wandering albatross, on nest and the Prion Island colony.  The wandering albatross has the largest wingspan of any living bird, with the wingspan between, up to 12' from wingtip to wingtip. It can soar on the open ocean for hours at a time, riding the updrafts from individual swells, with a glide ratio of 22 units of distance for every unit of drop. The wandering albatross can live up to 23 years. They hunt at night on the open ocean for cephalopods, small fish, and crustaceans. The survival of the species is at risk due to mortality from long-line fishing gear, Diomedea exulans Wandering albatross, on nest and the Prion Island colony.

Hundreds of thousands of pairs of king penguins nest here, laying eggs in December and February, then alternating roles between foraging for food and caring for the egg or chick, Aptenodytes patagonicus King penguin colony.

True to their name, rockhopper penguins scramble over the rocky intertidal zone and up steep hillsides to reach their nesting colonies which may be hundreds of feet above the ocean, often jumping up and over rocks larger than themselves.  Rockhopper penguins reach 23" and 7.5lb in size, and can live 20-30 years.  They feed primarily on feed on krill, squid, octopus, lantern fish, molluscs, plankton, cuttlefish, and crustaceans, Eudyptes chrysocome, Eudyptes chrysocome chrysocome Rockhopper penguins, on rocky coastline of New Island in the Falklands.

The brown patches are groups of 'oakum boys', juveniles in distinctive brown plumage.  Salisbury Plain, Bay of Isles, South Georgia Island, Aptenodytes patagonicus Gentoo penguin stealing nesting material, moving it from one nest to another, Pygoscelis papua, Godthul Gentoo penguin stealing nesting material, moving it from one nest (hidden behind the clump on the left) to its nest on the right.  Snow falling, Pygoscelis papua, Godthul Gentoo penguins at their nest, snow falling, Pygoscelis papua, Godthul Gentoo penguins at their nest, snow falling, Pygoscelis papua, Godthul Adelie penguins navigate a steep dropoff, to get from their nests down to a rocky beach, in order to go to sea to forage for food, Pygoscelis adeliae, Paulet Island Gentoo penguin tending to its two chicks.  The nest is made of small stones, Pygoscelis papua, Cuverville Island Gentoo penguin tending to its two chicks.  The nest is made of small stones, Pygoscelis papua, Cuverville Island Gentoo penguin colony, set above and inland from the ocean on flat grasslands.  Individual nests are formed of small rocks collected by the penguins, New Island King penguin colony and the Bay of Isles on the northern coast of South Georgia Island.  Over 100,000 nesting pairs of king penguins reside here.  Dark patches in the colony are groups of juveniles with fluffy brown plumage.
