We would like thank the handling editor and two anonymous referees for their helpful comments in an early version of this article. We would also like to thank the Penguin Study Group for collecting the data and Leanne Renwick, Marg Healey and Roz Jessop for maintaining the database. The penguins were handled under permits from the Department of Sustainability and Environment in Victoria. The Australian Bird and Bat Banding Schemes provided the banding permit and the flipper bands. The first authors research was supported by the David Hay Writing-Up award.
