Love Birds-My Antarctica Odyssey

Love is a beautiful feel of heart that influences all, human and non-human, on this planet.

Love language is universal. Expressiveness of love may be different. Intensity of love may be different, too. Then, there are many love words and love gestures to show the feel of love. We may not understand all love words due to the language barrier. But we grasp fully the expression of love and know that human expression of love, as man & woman, is pretty with all tender gestures.

If I say that there is non-human expression of love which is equally pretty. So you are curious, now. And perhaps you have guessed right. I am talking of penguin love as I observed closely in continent Antarctica.

Penguin lovers
Lovers forever

Penguins are true love birds, though this term is frequently used for human lovers. Penguins are intensely in love. With all the cajoling they do with a delicate lip kiss. Penguins’ romance is very sweet. I saw joy and sense of fulfilment in their love gestures.

Male penguins gift uniquely to please their beloved ones. They present beautiful stones to their female partners. Lot of anxious moments for them wishing that their lovers really like their gifts. And they travel long distances to collect best stones.

Penguins are faithful. Once chosen, they remain committed to their partners. Studies on penguins tell that most of penguins are for monogamy, having same partner year after year.

Penguin couples share responsibilities. They take turns in hatching and feeding their chicks. They have strong community system. They live in colonies, they chat and they shout, too, to show their anguish.


Penguin lives I saw much on the pattern of us as humans. But while summing up, I do say that penguins’ love and their value system have lot to inspire even humans.



  1. ANTARCTICA…Seriously, I can’t believe how lucky you you are to have traveled there. I didn’t even know people were capable of traveling there. Very jealous. But that’s beside the point. I love the comparison in the article between penguins and humans. It is so true that we could learn so much from how they work together. Animals have figured it out but we are still learning.
