Record #153405:

Foraging behaviour of the chinstrap penguin Pygoscelis antarctica at Ardley Island, Antarctica / Rory P. Wilson, Gerrit Peters.

Title: Foraging behaviour of the chinstrap penguin Pygoscelis antarctica at Ardley Island, Antarctica / Rory P. Wilson, Gerrit Peters.
Author(s): Wilson, Rory P.
Peters, Gerrit.
Date: 1999.
In: Marine Ornithology. (1999.), Vol. 27 (1999)
Abstract: Reports data on foraging areas, dive behaviour and feeding patterns from 1991-92 and 1995-96 studies of chinstrap penguins at colony off King George Island, South Shetland Islands. Half of birds left to forage between 02h00 and 10h00, spending 10.6 h at sea in a looping type course, most foraging within 20 km of island at depth of 30 m, with maximum range of 33.5 km and maximum dive depth of 100.7 m. Sequence of maximum depths in dive series was non-random and irrespective of feeding. Peaks in feeding activity occurred between 06h00 and 09h00, and 14h00 and 22h00, and foraging continued as light intensity diminished around midnight, though effort and relative success decreased, indicating ability to forage better under twighlight conditions than sympatric congeners. Discusses foraging niche of chinstrap penguins in Southern Ocean ecosystem, and inter-specific differences in marine ecology that might reduce competition in areas of sympatry. In special issue Proceedings of the Third International Penguin Conference.
