This is Liberty, a Humboldt penguin chick at Milwaukee County Zoo. I just learned about her while reading the Zoo’s website. She was named Liberty because she hatched on July 4th of this year. Liberty’s dad is named Jack and her mom is named Eva.
We went to the Milwaukee Zoo this summer, and one of my favorite animals there was the Humboldt penguins. But at that time, Liberty was still too young and was not on display. According to the website, she is now on display at the zoo swimming with the other penguins.
We got these pictures from the Zoo’s website. When Liberty is full grown, she will have a black stripe on her chest, and a black patch on each side of her head. Humboldt penguins can’t fly, but they are very good swimmers. They live on the coasts of Chile and Peru, and they love to eat fish.
