When penguins fly ….


Adélie penguins take flight on King George Island

Yes, that is exactly what you think you’re seeing.

I mean, how freakin’ cool is that?

According to the Telegraph, BBC program host Terry Jones explained,

We’d been watching the penguins and filming them for days, without a hint of what was to come …. But then the weather took a turn for the worse. It was quite amazing. Rather than getting together in a huddle to protect themselves from the cold, they did something quite unexpected, that no other penguins can do.

Apparently a BBC crew witnessed the flight of the Adélie penguins from King George Island—750 miles south of the Falklands—while filming for an upcoming series called Miracles of Evolution.

Adélie penguins migrate north to South American rainforests.
