2/5/2015 to 2/27/2015 We flew to the "End of the World" Ushuaia, Terra del Fuego, Argentina with the
intent on catching our One Ocean ship, the Akademik Sergey Vavilov, to Antarctica via the Falklands and
South Georgia.  Our Tropical Birding guide, Andrew Spencer, was very knowledgeable and we were
pleased to have him help us identify all we saw.    (Click on NEXT PAGE below to go back in time and see
Gentoo, Magellanic, Rockhopper and more King Penguin colonies.)
2/13/2015  Prion Island, South Georgia:  The brief stop was simply too brief.  A Southern Giant Petrel was
caring for a chick while Wandering Albatross pairs were nesting nearby.  Gentoo Penguins and Giant
Skuas were also going about their business.
2/14 and 15/2015  We left Prion Island and headed to Gold Harbor, South Georgia:  A smaller King Penguin
colony  was waiting for us (compared to the larger one Salisbury Plain - Click NEXT PAGE below) with
young male Elephant Seals and Fur Seals as well.  Also, Northern Giant Petrel and White-chinned Petrel.
2/14 and 15/2015  On the way to the Gold Harbor area, South Georgia:  Macaroni Penguins were seen
porpoising the waters (we saw only one on land).  Also, Grey-headed Albatross, Gentoo Penguins
porpoising, and Kelp Gull.
1/30/15 to and 4/6/15  Nassua County, FL:  We interrupt this program to add our Great Horned Owl family
pics.  The two chicks are adorable and have grown so much.
