Cute alert: Valentines for Academy penguins

Love was for the birds Thursday at the California Academy of Sciences.

Keepers distributed Valentine's Day cards to their flock of penguins. The birds -- who mate for life -- then carry them back to their mates who use them to pad their nests.

The Academy will do it again on Valentine's Day when visitors will be able to make their own valentines for the penguins from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and then watch the special delivery.
