Southern rockhopper penguin

The nice colors of this penguin (red eye, orange beak,pink feet, yellow eyebrows) project an air of exuberance that no other penguin can reach. Small but noisy. Always very active. Always part of large groups and colonies.

But how do you join two imperatives like eating at sea, loving cliffs and living in colonies at the top of the cliff? You have to climb and be ready for rough waters.
