These are characterised by the shaggy yellow crest.

(Eudyptes sclateri)

One of the set of twelve penguin stamps issued
jointly by New Zealand and Ross Dependency in 2001

The Erect-crested Penguins breed on the sub-Antarctic Islands
 south of New Zealand, mainly on the Antipodes and Bounty Islands.
 They are fairly common and probably number about half a million birds.
