Common Name: Little Blue Penguin
Taxonomic Classification: Eudyptula minor
Found: Castor Bay, 1997

The smallest species of penguin. They return to nesting areas at dusk after feeding at sea alone or in small groups – mostly on fish, squid and crustacean species. Blue penguins must stay ashore continuously for about 2 weeks during their annual feather moult (mainly between January and March), when all feathers are replaced at the same time. They are the only species of penguin that can have more than one clutch of eggs per breeding season. Many adults are killed by vehicles where coastal roads run between breeding sites and the sea. Little blue penguin populations are in decline. Eudyptula means ‘good little diver’.
