BARQUETE, Viviane; BUGONI, Leandro; SILVA-FILHO, Rodolfo P. y ADORNES, Andréa C.. Review of records and notes on King Penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) and Rockhopper Penguin (Eudyptes chrysocome) in Brazil. Hornero [online]. 2006, vol.21, n.1, pp. 45-48. ISSN 1850-4884.
A review of previous findings and new records of King Penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) and Rockhopper Penguin (Eudyptes chrysocome) on the Brazilian coast is presented. In total there are six records of the King Penguin and ten records of the Rockhopper Penguin. Juvenile and adults of both species were found stranded mostly on Rio Grande do Sul coast, southern Brazil. Records of King Penguins are restricted to the summer season, while records of Rockhopper Penguins are mostly during winter. Rockhopper Penguin appears to displace more regularly to the Subtropical Convergence area, while King Penguins appear to be vagrant in Brazil, following the Malvinas Current.
