I’ve written an article on color in penguins, highlighting some of the remarkable discoveries my colleagues in the modern penguin world have made about pigments, structural color, and more (plus of course a mention of fossil penguin feathers). The article is in the January/February 2016 issue, and you can check it out here as well:
