While walking back across the beach, I noticed a male gentoo penguin picking up beach treasures and taking them to his girlfriend at their tussock grass nest. I watched the male do this for about an hour, but according to my travelmates, he did this all afternoon. It was very cute, though the female seemed to care less. I hope their relationship makes it. Here's a video of the treasure-gathering action: www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153791328902072
