Banded Bird #29809, Male

This male was in our study in both 2014 and 2016. He is a good parent and 11 years old this year. We do not know if he hast teh same mate but he is on the same nest site, so perhaps. In 2016 the first egg was laid Nov 14, this year it was Nov 10, so these penguins have started the season earlier.

First egg: Nov 10, 2018
