Birdorable goes to the Antarctic

This week we've added the Emperor Penguin to the site. Did you know that Emperor Penguins are the largest of all penguins and can grow up to 48 inches in height? They are also the deepest divers of any birds, reaching depths of 1,755 feet and holding their breath for up to 18 minutes! They are most famous for the incredible journeys they make each year in order to mate and to feed their offspring. They trek 31 to 75 miles through the harsh Antarctic winter to breeding colonies with thousands of other individuals. You should really see the March of the Penguins (2005), if you haven't already. It's an incredible movie.
