Named after an unusual Macaroni hairstyle of the 18th Centruy, Macaroni penguins have orange tufty plumes for eyebrows. There is an estimated population of 12 million breeding pairs but only a proportion of these live in the Antarctic region. The species is very colonial and form large colonies of hundreds of thousands of birds. They are the more vocal of all penguin species.
