What great footage! I love how they sing to you. Thank you for the “almost-live” reports from your trip, I am really enjoying them!

Love this video clip – especially the little Rockhopper trying to mate with your arm. Reminded me of my days working with penguins at the New England Aquarium in Boston. We had Rockhopper, Little Blue and African penguins (cousins of these Magellanic penguins). The latter also rocked the building with their donkey-like braying! I miss those guys!

Thank you so much. I have more penguin videos on my blog, so you might want to poke around. One of the most popular ones is “Cookie,” the Little Penguin, who was getting a lunchtime “enrichment” by hanging out with the keepers in the break room. People went crazy over this video. Cookie is a character!
Looking forward to more posts on your blog and feel free to link to “Parrot Nation” if you’d like!
Thanks for stopping by,

Hi again Patricia,
You’re right – Cookie is adorable! I love the ending, where Cookie gets all amorous with the keeper’s arm – our little blues at the NEAq were more aloof around us, although they did respond to our voices. But I’ve had many Rockies and African penguins have love affairs with my forearms.
I’m just getting started with my blog, and have been very busy trying to finish a book, so I haven’t had time to figure out all the ins and outs of blogging yet, but once I do, I will link to your blog. Please feel free to link to my blog as well!

Soooooo cute! I love penguins! Rock-hoppers are so cool w/ their cute little “hairdo”. Great video!
