Little Blue Penguin (Eudyptula minor)

The little blue penguin is also known as just the blue penguin, the fairy penguin and is known as the Kororā in Māori. They are found on the coast all the way around New Zealand and southern Australia. They hunt during the day and nest at night along the coast not far from the high tide mark.

The McGregor Museum holds both taxidermied and skeletal specimens as shown below.
