Penguin Sewer Stream. One of the streams of penguin effluent running away from the nesting area. The ground in this area is basically years and years of compressed penguin poo. The width of the stream is the distance a penguin can jump, as they progressively pack it in over the years jumping the width of the stream as they wander back and forth.
Penguin Sewer. This is basically all the stinky run-off from the penguin nesting area. It smells pretty bad.
Skuas making off with stolen Adelie Penguin egg. Skuas will often work in pairs when preying on nesting penguins. One will distract the penguin while the other steals the egg.
Skua eating a dead penguin.
Self-laying track vehicle. 6 hours drive away from McMurdo, 40 below, a storm headed our way in a few hours, and one of the tracks on the vehicle breaks. Events like this are why we always have lots of back-up options available when we travel deep field.
Storm damage to one of the dormitory buildings at McMurdo Station.
Group of adelie penguins begin to dive into the sea together to go fishing. They typically gather in large groups on the shore, then all jump in at the same time to reduce their chances of being eaten by an ocean predator.
The first of a group of adelie penguins dives into the ocean, while the others look on.
Adelie penguin and newborn chicks. There are actually two of them there, the one on the right has its head tucked in, the one on the left has its body tucked in. These chicks are only a day or so old.
Adelie penguin swimming off Cape Bird, porpoising in and out of the water like a dolphin.
