Abstract Macaroni (Eudyptes chrysolophus) and Southern Rockhopper penguins (E. c. chrysocome) have been classified as Vulnerable due to decreasing populations in recent decades. We report on a survey of Isla Recalada, Chile, a site described historically as containing an estimated population of 10,013 (±570) Rockhopper and 559 Macaroni penguins. Our survey was conducted on 14 and 15 November 2005 to coincide with peak colony attendance. No Rockhopper or Macaroni penguins were observed on Isla… 

Foraging ranges in Southern Rockhopper Penguins (Eudyptes chrysocome chrysocome) on Isla Noir, Chile

The Southern Rockhopper Penguin, Eudyptes c. chrysocome, breeds on the Falkland/Malvina Islands, Isla Pingüino, and Ilsa de los Estados in the Atlantic Ocean and on Barnevelt, Terhalten,

The globally population decline of Southern Rockhopper penguins does considered this species as v ulnerable. However, in the Diego Ramirez archipelago (southern Chile) during the recent years the

) has a circumpolar distribution and is the most widespread of the crested penguins (Williams 1995). In Chile the non breeding distribution still basically unknown and its breeding distribution is

Status of Crested Penguin (Eudyptes spp.) populations on three islands in Southern Chile

The new estimate for Rockhopper Penguins suggests a population increase over the last 20 years, consistent with recent data for the main colony in Argentina, and the species and the factors potentially responsible for population declines elsewhere may need to be re-evaluated.

Status of the Humboldt Penguin in Peru, 1999-2000

Abstract The status of the Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) was investigated in Peru after the 1997-98 El Niño event, the strongest of the last century. Penguin numbers along the southern and

Status and Numerical Trends of King, Gentoo, and Rockhopper Penguins Breeding in the Falkland Islands

The number of King Penguin chicks decreased by 19% from 339 to 275, which is probably a reflection of variable breeding success, rather than a decline in breeding pairs.

Re-evaluation of Historical Rockhopper Penguin Population Data in the Falkland Islands

Re-calculations of historical Rockhopper Penguin population trends in the Falkland Islands have important implications for the assessment of the global population size and long-term trends of this species.

It is suggested that birds at stopover sites can influence the fatty acid composition of their body fat by selective feeding, and this can significantly affect the energetic cost of migration.
