DEAD PENGUIN Ngamotu Beach, New Plymouth. Found at base of the rocks above high tide mark. It has a wound on the left side of its head (hidden). It seems to have been dead for a few days based on the state of the body decomposition.

Description from Wikipedia

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.
