Not the usual setting one might expect for penguins. I never thought of sand and rock; I always thought snow and ice. I learned that penguins, at least these Magellanic penguins, nest in burrows in the sand. The Magellanic penguins are found in southern Chile, southern Argentina, and the Falkland Islands. They are about 2 to 2 1/2 feet tall and they are the most engaging little fellows. These were shot at Otway Sound in southern Chile.
