March of the Fossil Penguins

Fossil penguin discoveries and research

Today, the excursion comes to an end.  After pursuing penguins in the quarry, in the museum, and in the oceans (we saw some Little Blues on one return drive), Dr. Brinkman and I will return to North Carolina.  However, the work has only just begun.  Over the next few months, Dr. Fordyce and I will continue studying the fossils and seeing just how much they can tell us about how ancient penguins lived. Eventually the results will be announced – and you can read about it right here.  Thanks to everyone who followed along and posted comments.  I’ll pick up the thread again after the holidays – some very exciting New Zealand penguin news is on the horizon.
