SCITUATE, Mass. (WHDH) — A family in Scituate made a unique discovery, finding a bird that resembles a penguin in their backyard.
“We were just looking at it waddling around the yard like a penguin and it looks like a penguin,” said Joby Norton, who found the bird and brought it inside.
The Massachusetts Audobon Society said the bird was not a penguin but a Common Murre. The species is normally found in the northern Atlantic or Arctic oceans and rarely goes ashore.
