Penguin Named By 1st Graders

The Penguin Post has learned that a group of children in the first grade on a field trip in Syracuse N.Y. got to name a baby — a baby Humboldt penguin, that is.  There were many “oohs” and “aahs” when the Humboldt penguin chick was revealed at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse.  The visiting first-graders decided to name her Magdelena.  The children chose the name from three options, each representing the penguin’s Latin-American origins.  Magdelena is the first Humboldt penguin chick to hatch at the upstate New York zoo this year. penguin-baby-5-11-10-9725jpg-79eb4045ed5d13c6_large
