In 2013, a young boy named Noah Bloom found an injured baby magpie on the ground near his local library. He brought her home and he and his family nursed her back to health. Now that magpie, whom the family named Penguin, has formed a lifelong friendship with her rescuers.
When the Bloom family took Penguin in, they nursed her back to health with "a proper Magpie diet and lots of snuggles." Noah, now 11, and his family — brothers Reuben, 13, and Oli, 9, and mom and dad Sam and Cameron — never knew that their injured magpie would become a regular visitor in their home.

And the Blooms aren't the only ones who have fallen in love with Penguin. Thanks to an Instagram account — PenguintheMagpie — and some exceptional photography, Penguin now has more than 8,000 followers who track her updates and wish her well.

But there's no doubt that the only followers Penguin really cares about are the ones who cared for her when she needed them most.
