  1. Happy Feet’s transmitter stopped responding on Friday, according to this news report. It seems sad they could not keep him in a zoo where he would be safe.

  2. By the way, I really enjoy this blog. I started reading for a fun penguin “fix”, but now that I am taking a paleontolgy class, I realize how much I learned along the way! (I am a retired school nurse taking college classes for lifelong learning.) I like the mix of articles Dr. Ksepka posts here, and it would also be very interesting to see what research and field work looks like from day to day. Keep up the good work, Dr. Ksepka – it is easy to see how much knowledge and enthusiasm you have for these remarkable birds!
