Dead Penquin found on the beach
CJ and Carol are removing a dead penquin from a fishing net. If you hang out at the beach a lot as we like to do, it is suprising how many birds can be found dead as an appearent result of getting tangled up in fishing nets or lines.
Here is a different dead penquin. The native penquins are very small and I beleive they are called blue penquins.
