New bird to add to U.S. birdwatchers' "life list"?

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS - Penguins have been spotted swimming in the icy coastal waters off Boston with a look of delight in their beady little eyes. Much to the delight of avid East Coast birdwatchers, it is suspected that the aquatic creatures, who normally live on the fringes of cold and snowy Antarctica, have migrated through the record cold Atlantic Waters in search of new habitat.

"Record snow fall and frigid temperatures have plummeted the East Coast into a habitat very attractive to penguins," says Marine Biologist, Chelsea D. LaFonda, Ph.D., "Animals are no different from humans. They are restless. It's a matter of thinking the snow is always whiter, the cold is always colder, the ice is always harder, and the fish are always more delicious in the other hemisphere of the world."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
