Here's an image of a Chinstrap Penguin crossing the stream in the valley area of Baily Head, a prominent headland forming the easternmost extremity of Deception Island, Antarctica, which is home to a breeding colony of more than 100,000 pairs of Chinstrap Penguins. The orange/red color on the chest of the penguin is some excrement from one of their main foods, Krill, small crustaceans of the order Euphausiacea, found in all the world's oceans.
