Some birds’ species are known to live on earth for as long as one hundred years and above. This means a century and above. Birds are a source of inspiration owing to their ability to feed themselves and build their own nests contradicting the behaviors of some lazy human beings who only wait to leap where they have not sown yet they have both hands and two legs which they can use to work and place food on the table. Such inspirational birds include the gentoo penguins in the Antarctica. They are known for their unique features, characters and the audacity to face life.

However they lay their eggs in nest made outside the sea and they secure this nest in the best way possible. The nest are wide and spacious enough for laying of eggs and some male gentoo penguins make advances to the female by ensuring that they get just the awesome stones. This makes them look more or less like human being to some extent.
