Yellow-eyed Penguin, New Zealand

Yellow-eyed Penguin is a second penguin species (after Little Blue Penguin) that can be relatively easily seen in New Zealand. It is one of the rarest penguins in the world and unique to New Zealand.

We’re lucky to encounter a wild yellow-eyed penguin on the beach, nearby Dunedin. But later, we took a tour in Otago Peninsula at the Penguin Place. Besides guided tours, that private conservation reserve also has a lodge offering overnight stays nearby the penguins. 馃檪

More information about Yellow-eyed Penguins you can find at the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust website.

Pingwin 偶贸艂tooki, to opr贸cz pingwina ma艂ego, drugi gatunek pingwina, kt贸ry stosunkowo 艂atwo spotka膰 w Nowej Zelandii, i tylko w Nowej Zelandii! Jeszcze dodam, 偶e jest to najrzadszy gatunek pingwina!

Mieli艣my to szcz臋艣cie zobaczy膰 pingwina 偶贸艂tookiego na pla偶y niedaleko Dunedin. 馃檪 A nast臋pnie wzi臋li艣my udzia艂 w zwiedzaniu rezerwatu na P贸艂wyspie Otago, na terenie kt贸rego 偶yj膮 pingwiny 偶贸艂tookie. Miejsce nazywa si臋 “Penguin Place” i tak偶e oferuje za drobn膮 op艂at膮 zakwaterowanie, wi臋c mo偶na spa膰 “blisko” pingwin贸w. 馃檪

  1. Tak z ciekawo艣ci. Jak si臋 fotografuje takie ptaki? Trzeba mie艣 sprz臋t, maskowanie itp. czy tez s膮 na tyle ufne, 偶e ww. gad偶ety nie s膮 konieczne?

    1. Te pingwiny z Nowej Zelandii wydawa艂y si臋 by膰 mniej ufne, a mo偶e po prostu ludzie tam chcieli mie膰 pewno艣膰, 偶e nikt ich nie straszy; wi臋c cz臋sto by艂y takie budki w kt贸rych nale偶a艂o si臋 schowa膰. Ale 偶adne specjalne stroje, czy nawet sprz臋t nie jest potrzebny – moje wszystkie zdj臋cia s膮 robione ma艂ym automatem (ale ustawiam wszystko manualnie), oczywi艣cie lepszy sprz臋t = lepszej jako艣ci zdj臋cia.
      Mo偶esz por贸wna膰 moje zdj臋cia z Falklandn贸w (http://travelingrockhopper.com/2015/04/) – tam by艂o sporo pingwin贸w, ale one w wi臋kszo艣ci by艂y ciekawe ludzi i podchodzi艂y do mnie 馃檪

  2. By following your posts on New Zealand, it grows in me the desire to visit it!
    Incredible: I accumulate something like 14,000 hours of actual flight… (my previous job) and still have not been in NZ and AUS
    I am deeply ashamed….
    thank you so much for sharing all the informations and links!

      December, as a month about New Zealand on my blog, is not over yet, so hopefully you’ll find more inspirations! 馃檪
      I wish you a trip to NZ or AUS, both are amazing places 馃檪

  3. What a cute penguin this one is. I’ve never heard of this yellow eyed one, which, as you say, is unique to New Zealand. How lucky you got to see one. I’d love to see penguin in the wild. 馃榾

    1. it’s an amazing experience to meet penguins, especially when they approach you to “try” your shoelaces 馃檪

  4. Love that they approach to “try” your shoelaces. I’d never heard about that. What fun! I do envy your travel. But getting to see places through your eyes is the next best thing. Thank you.
