Penguin Awareness Day - Penguin Puzzle

Today is Penguin Awareness Day! This commemorative day is always celebrated on January 20th, though the origins of the holiday are unclear. What is very clear is that these special charismatic birds deserve celebration! Many of the world's penguin species face population threats from habitat loss and other environmental strains.

Here are some resources for learning more about penguins:

To get your mind on these flightless black-and-white beauties, we are debuting a new fun puzzle series here at Birdorable. Let's play Which one doesn't belong?

The birds in the image below have a lot in common, but one of them doesn't really belong. Can you pick out the species of penguin that doesn't go with the others, and tell us what the others have in common? Visit the meet page if you need help identifying the birds and finding out which one doesn't belong.

Which one doesn't belong?

I'm gonna go with the Yellow-eyed Penguin since it is from New Zealand. The others like the snowy places. We (daughter and I) knew the Chinstrap, Emporer and Adelie right off. They are just tooooo cute.

Thanks for playing, Kim! You're absolutely right; the other three species of penguin all live in and around Antarctica. :)
