A growing number of people are taking to bird watching and many will now travel the globe to expand their sights and knowledge of various species of birds.

Penguin watching is an exciting experience. These usually shy marine flightless birds can be viewed a number of ways which do not interfere with their day to day activities. In New Zealand the rare Yellow Eyed Penguin can be viewed at the Taiaroa Head near Dunedin by a series of bunkers and dug-outs, or in the Catlins some blind shelters have been set up.

However you choose to view these beautiful and cute birds be sure to watch from a distance and quietly and you may be rewarded with a close encounter.
