New bird flu found in Adele penguins

Here is an interesting brief article about the a new bird flu virus being found on Adele penguins in Antarctica.  This is the first time a live strain has been reported found in penguins in Antarctica.  The study found it in 3% of the penguins sampled (8 out of ~300 it sounds like) and the penguins did not appear to be sick.
