Four Magellanic penguins from Chicago's Shedd Aquarium stormed the stadium in a recent visit to neighboring Soldier Field.

Izzy, Darwin, Tombo and Charlotte explored the locker room of the NFL's Chicago Bears and got plenty of exercize on the field which was set up that day for a Chicago Fire MLS match.

The penguin field trips are important for the birds, providing variety and ensuring that just like in the wild, no two days are the same.

Field trips to various locations in and around the city are a regular part of the penguins routine.

Beautiful skies with unseasonably cool temperatures will be on tap for Thursday. Our next chance of rain will slide in Thursday night. Some of those showers may stick around for Friday morning but the afternoon should be dry with highs in the low to mid 60s.
