Juvenile birds of pan-Antarctic area

10p : Gentoo Penguin (巴布亞企鵝)
50p : South Georgia Pintail (南喬治亞黃嘴鴨)
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (2004)

12th March, 2008. King Edward Point

Very few stamps illustrated juvenile of the species, shown above was issued by South Georgia who done a best job on 2004, a set of definitive illustrated 12 different juvenile. However only seven are birds and others are marine life and deer. Above cover was for mailing maxicard which has been posted here on December of last year, with two of the stamps.

Gentoo Penguin is widely live in pan-Antarctica and Antarctica, but only breeds in pan-Antarctica islands like South Georgia. There are approximately ten thousands pairs bleed on the islands, each pair lay two eggs from early to late October, but mostly only one chick can be successfully bled each year. South Georgia Pintail is an endemic subspecies of Yellow-bill Pintail (黃嘴鴨), only 1,000 pairs currently on the islands. It can't fly (carnivore) although it is teal, mostly the couple nest on grassland to bleed their chicken.
