Looking out for the guilty party 🙂
Rockhopper penguins are small, aggressive, crested penguins so named because of the way they hop from boulder to boulder when moving around their rocky colonies. Rockhoppers are a sub-Antarctic species breeding at cool, southern localities such as Macquarie Island, the Falklands, Campbell Island, Tristan da Cunha, and the Antipodes.
Rockhoppers have distinctive crest feathers on their heads, bright orange-red bills and tiny blood red eyes. The top of the head has spiked black feathers. Like all penguins, Rockhopper have a big head, a short, thick neck, a streamlined shape, a short, wedge-shaped tail, and strong, stiff, flipper-like wings.
