Some days the yellow-eyed penguins stay home through the day and have a discussion like this group caught on one of our spy cams. Other days there is not a single penguin in the colony. It seems that either all go fishing or many stay home. Maybe it has to do with the females. If some females fancy a day off fishing then their mates also stay home to defend them against overtures from the single males in the neighbourhood. Afterall there are not enough females to go around, so if you have one you need to guard her or you join the single males.
