Adasha the Chaser: Taupe Band Left Wing


Hatched in Idaho Falls on 15 May 2007, she came to the Academy that same year. Recently she has been observed chasing other birds, especially “Homey’ and “Pierre”. This is a bold move for a penguin, because those birds are much older with very well developed social skills. Even though “Adasha” is young and small she pushes her social status as much as her brother “Dyer”. The brother/sister characteristics as The Punk and The Chaser read sitcom to me.-Pamela Schaller
