|Humbolt Penguin, Spheniscus humboldti|
This little south american fella was sunbathing in the Paris Zoo. Humbolt and Magellan Penguins are closely related and very similar. But the white strips on either side of the Humbolt Penguins emerge from the band on the throat, while in Magellans the strips are disconnected.
Here is a useful website about them, and penguins in general.

Hi Sam.Its interesting to see penguin in this pose.
They are usually like this to slide on ice.
My children are having a camp with their school (all 15 children) to count penguins nesting inland at Charleston,just north of here.
There's no ice here though.
The penguins cross the road and nest in the forest!
