Sea Birds in The Right Blue

Little Blue PenguinThe young girl in the photo at right is watching a Little Blue Penguin (Eudyptula minor). The little bird, which had been injured, now lives in a managed colony of rescued penguins at the Antarctic Center, Christchurch, New Zealand. We visited the Antarctic Center in December of 2007.

We sometimes forget that sea birds are classified as marine life, and that they play important roles in marine ecosystems. We don't have too many photos and stories about sea birds on The Right Blue, but here they are:

  1. Hi Bobbie - I like the idea you have of posting your like posts together. It categorizes them for your old and new readers alike. It's great to be able to revisit them.

  2. Thanks, Kathy. I have a few more 'collection pages' in preparation. I plan to put links to these in the sidebar as an index. It may be more useful to readers than just the labels.



We welcome your comments and invite your questions. Dialogue is a good thing!
