Passed on by sparowe, an article from the Christian Science Monitor on rare yellow-eyed penguins in New Zealand: Up before dawn? Only for penguins.

Yahoo! reports that a Fiordland Crested penguin washed ashore in Australia and was taken to a zoo in Sydney, where he was saved and will hopefully reproduce with the zoo's two lonely females...

Our penguin has been all around the world - Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, America. Here are a few photos:

Steuben Glass offers the Penguin Collection -- Darby Webster's two playful Sliding Penguins (new for 2006), the classic Satin Penguin and George Thompson's 1973 Polished Glass Penguin. Quite adorable, but a mere $1,200! o_O

Now we can make our own garden penguins when it snows! Plow & Hearth has kits, though I suspect it would not be difficult to buy foam board at Michael's or some other craft store and design our own for a lot less money:

CBS News has posted photos of the "white carpet" premiere for Happy Feet, which includes live penguins as well as the actors in the film and visitors.

Also, a game PSA: We got a coupon for $5 off the Nintendo Happy Feet game at Best Buy with a Burger King toy, but our store still didn't have it on the shelf at lunchtime today (officially it came out yesterday). We checked K-mart, which not only had the game but was giving out little stuffed Mumble penguins with it, a store exclusive. So if you're going to get the game, you may either want to get a toy at Burger King for the Best Buy coupon or you may want to go to K-mart to get the stuffed penguin! (The game comes with a coupon for a free movie ticket.)

So I caved and took my younger son to Build-a-Bear after he brought home a very good report card, because they have Happy Feet penguins and you get a free stuffed fishie if you stuff one by tomorrow!

Mumble, MumbleCollapse )
