South Polar Skua vs. Gentoo Penguin

Penguin colonies, like this one on Peterman Island, are often home to skuas as well. Not really to the liking of the penguins, as the skuas aim for the eggs or chicks. This South Polar Skua was wandering around the colony and was chased away all the time by all penguins. He didn’t really try hard, but clearly the penguins didn’t like this neighbour…
