Yes Ken, I'll en(light)en your penguin candle.
National Parks rangers are the most likely to move it to where it will be
"safe". This will mean that birders will miss out seeing it, at least, in
the wild.
Tony. mxpp.

For the benefit of Ozbirders devoid of any sense of humour, I'll make it
easier for you, the joke is in the ps.
