A penguin in a pear tree?

I know, I know. No way this is a penguin. But someone brought it to the New York penguin tree party, and I was too impressed with the effort to not make an exception. Hey, at least it’s the right colors, sort of, and the right body shape. I can remember the moment I got this ornament and hear the guest apologizing, but I can’t remember who it was. I wish I could, because I really like having this one on the tree, penguin or not.

Knitted bird, probably a partridge, made in Peru
Acquired: 1980s
Number: 0070
Size: 4.5 inches long
