Avian Island in Video

To accompany our current featured story on Avian Island, we have uploaded a video taken by our scientists on the island. This one minute thirty second clip shows Adelie Penguins as they move around their nesting area.

Here you can see some of the Adelie penguin nesting areas on Avian Island. The red color on the ground comes from the penguin’s poop, which maintains that color due to the penguins’ highly krill-based diet.
