CHINSTRAP PENGUIN NEST-BUILDING, ORNE ISLAND

CHINSTRAP PENGUIN NEST-BUILDING, ORNE ISLAND

In order to attract a mate, the chinstrap has to prove his skills by bringing the best stones from which to build a nest. Even after the chicks have hatched, the nest needs continued refinement as cheeky neighbours are prone to taking stones when the owners aren't looking!
