Iceberg Penguins Photograph by Ralph Lee Hopkins A group of chinstrap penguins lines the edge of an iceberg adrift in Antarctic waters. Chinstraps are among the most abundant penguins, and some colonies live on floating icebergs.
Red-legged honeycreepers are found in the tropical New World from S Mexico south to Peru, Bolivia and central Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, and on Cuba (where possibly introduced). Photographed here in Costa Rica.
The male Indian (Blue) Peacock tail (20 feathers) is dark brown & the "train" is made up of elongated upper tail coverts (more than 200 feathers) and nearly all of these feathers end with an elaborate eye-spot. A few of the outer feathers lack the spot and end in a crescent shaped black tip. The underside is dark glossy green shading into blackish under the tail. The thighs are buff colored. The male has a spur on the leg above the hind toe.
