Yellow-eyed Penguins. :) These large penguins (approximately 60-70 cm tall) are found only in New Zealand's southern waters. They nest amongst coastal vegetation, raising one or two chicks with the parent birds taking turns looking after the egg an dchicks while the other parent forages for food.

It sounds like these guys know how to do the parenting right. :) This was sent with a yellow-eyed penguin stamp as well :) Thanks Pip!
