True, but he missed an important point, that of the fact that penguins can stay
months or years at sea maturing and fishing, returning to land only to mate,
lay eggs and raise young.

Fly?  They don't need to do that.  So what was his point?  I think he had his
head stuck in the sand, like another bird that does not fly.
