Another ballpark, another zoo, another penguin
The National Zoo doesn’t even have a penguin exhibit but one of the gift shops had this ornament. My niece and I were visiting our friends SallyAnn and Steve Rogers, mainly to see the Florida Marlins play at the Nationals new stadium, but we also went to the zoo one day. I dropped this ornament taking a picture of SallyAnn and Becky, but bought it anyway and glued it back together when I got home. You might be able to see a chip out of the tip of its beak if you look closely enough.
