Here’s a penguin family that has found a Christmas cardinal. Actually, it’s more like the cardinal has found the penguins, judging by the stunned reaction on their faces and the outstretched wings of the surprised and delighted youngster. These might be the longest beaks on any of my penguins. No wonder the cardinal mistook one for a tree branch.
