    Punta Tombo is the most important colony of Magellan Penguins in continental Patagonia. More than 1,5 million of them arrive here every year in order to mate.

    The first penguins arrive in September and stay at Punta Tombo until mid-March, in the hope of finding a perfect mate; because Magellanic penguins are monogamous and find one partner for life. Males perform courtship ceremonies to attract females. Sometimes they fight each other, if both choose the same female.

      Nature is amazing and this video just reiterates that! The clip shows a duck landing on the surface of an iced over pond. As the duck lands it begins to slide along in the direction of a flock of birds, to soften the landing and steady itself, the feisty fowl calmly sticks out one leg, easily averting disaster.
