Adelie Penguin

Pygoscelis adeliae (Hombron & Jacquinot, 1841)

The Adélie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) is a species of penguin common along the entire Antarctic coast. They are among the most southerly distributed of all seabirds, as are the Emperor Penguin, the South Polar Skua, the Wilson's Storm Petrel, the Snow Petrel, and the Antarctic Petrel. In 1840, French explorer Jules Dumont d'Urville named them for his wife, Adèle. Source: Wikipedia
