ON ISLA MARTILLO IN PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA . . . In the Beagle Channel, Isla Martillo has colony of about 10,000 Magellanic penguins, plus some Gentoo and a single, solitary King penguin. Eighty people are allowed on Isla Martillo each day. We were there today with about fifteen other people, on a bus-boat expedition.
Here are a few photos. I'll post more when we get back to Buenos Aires this weekend. Click to enlarge--
Some more Magellanic penguins. Thousands of penguins make a lot of noise--
A few more Magellanic penguins (Andrea's photo this time). We took pictures of the other species too. They'll be up in the later flickr set--
