Definitely not a cassowary. My guess would be a grey heron, but it's very hard to even get a sense of scale from the photo. The penguins actually are called Little Penguins. They used to be called Fairy Penguins when I was young, but it looks like Little Penguins is the proper, international name.

Thanks! They didn't look like herons but idk. With the benefit of Wikipedia yeah, *definitely* not cassowaries, my backbrain has failed this one.

The colouring looks right, though I'd have thought I'd have recognised a goose shape; my impression at the time was that it was more of the class where I (if not actual scientists) lump together kiwi and cagou and emu. However at this stage my memory's as blurry as the photo so an ID is probably a lost cause.
