Default BBC Camera Crews Discover Flying Penguins!

BBC Camera crews filming at the Antarctic for the natural history series Miracles of Evolution had captured footage of penguins that have flight ability. Ornithologists are unsure if these are indeed a separate species or simply a subspecies of Adelie Penguins. Apparently, these birds exist in one or two inlets on the Antarctic coast near Halley Bay in the Weddell Sea.

They sure did a great job with toucan and the penguins landing in the tropical foliage... The look on the toucanís face was priceless to me.

~smile~ I kept quiet. ...but I must say, the members here, with their awareness of the natural world, probably are a bit harder to fool with something like this.
