Now, we are coming to the Humboldt penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) on our walk through the birds park walsrode.

This station is always a favorite for my daughter. Half of the pool is surrounded by a stonewall 1 meter high, so the children can easily look over it or sit on it to watch these birds. They are absolutely not shy (sometimes I regret that because some parents don't pay enough attension on what there children do, which is not always nice) and so can view this species in great detail.
The following information can be found here.

Humboldt penguins, also known as the Peruvian penguins, are members of the Spheniscus genus, This warm weather penguin lives mostly on rocky mainland shores, especially near cliffs, or on islands off the coasts of Chile and Peru. They do not migrate preferring to reside in temperate waters year round...
... Using their strong wings as flippers, Humboldts 'fly' underwater, usually just below the surface, at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour, taking small fish and krill and eating them whole. They steer with their feet and tail. Their feathers are stiff and overlap to waterproof and insulate their body. Like all penguins, they have excellent eyesight both underwater and on land...
...Humboldt penguins can breed at any time of the year depending on food availability. Sexual maturity is reached between 2 and 7 years old. Nests or burrows are established in caves, cracks or holes and occasionally in more open sites such as on a rocky shore. Females lay one, two, or three eggs with both parents taking turns incubating them for a period of about 40 days. Chicks are born with greyish brown, downy feathers...
...Humboldts live approximately 20 years in the wild; up to 30 years in zoos...

I was unsure about which photo to post here. This one I like because these two birds look like having a heavy argument in the moment (which is probably nonsense). Pinguins are very social animals and like to live in a community.
