Chinstrap Penguins

Chinstrap Penguins are found in Antarctica, the South Sandwich Islands, and surrounding areas. Their name comes from the black marking marking under their chin coupled with the black feathers on top of their head that makes it look like they are wearing a helmet.

Here is an audio recording of Chinstrap Penguin Calls made at a Chinstrap Penguin Colony in Antarctica:
