Macaroni penguin / Goldschopfpinguin

This species derives its name from its unusual looking yellow crest feathers. Early explorers who saw these crests thought that they resembled the 18th century men’s hat style that was called macaroni. These penguins are also characterized by their large, orange-brown bill, pink feet, white undersides and black backs. Additionally, each macaroni penguin has a small section of pink skin that is not covered by feathers and extends from each eye to the base of their bill.
