We here at 10,000 Birds are unsure how today became Penguin Awareness Day (though some jingoists think it’s National Penguin Awareness Day) but here we are, being aware of penguins.  Enjoy Charlie’s marvelous photos of Motherly Love Penguin-Style and remember the sad day when Silo and Scrappy broke up.
