Back in March of 2011, retired bricklayer João Pereira de Souza, 71, found JingJing, a Patagonian penguin, covered in oil on the beach near his home in Ilha Grande — a Brazilian fishing island.

de Souza nursed his tuxedoed friend back to health and since then, Jingjing has visited him every mating season for about two weeks at a time. His native land of Patagonia is about 2,000 miles south, by the way.

“When he returns he’s so happy to see me,” de Souza told WSJ, “he comes up to my neck and hoots.”

The two walk on the beach together, surf and — stop, it’s too adorable — share a can of sardines.

It only shows up at mating season...

It snuggles up to his neck...

They take long walks on the beach...

Romantic dinners...

I think someone is confused about the relationship.

chuckle.gif Affirmative on the sardines. I knew a guy in FL that found out the hard way Herons will be at your back door all the time if you break out a can with 'em.
Sweet, highly intelligent birds, and thank god for small favors with those foot long beaks.
