As their name implies, yellow-eyed penguins have pale yellow eyes. Their head is also pale yellow. A band of bright yellow extends from their eyes around the back of the head. Yellow-eyed penguins lay two eggs and parents typically raise both chicks, which can be nearly equal in size. The voice of the yellow-eyed penguin is semi-musical when compared to other penguin calls.
