Smallest Penguins Parade in Good Years

Humans parade to mark special occasions, and now it's been determined that fairy penguins, also known as little penguins, parade during "good years," meaning years when food is plentiful, breeding rates are up and sea temperatures are stable.

A penguin parade consists of 5 to 10 individuals that walk together, nearly in sync, while arriving or leaving a colony.
