Rod Stewart meets a spiky-haired feathered friend in San Diego

During a behind-the-scenes tour of San Diego's Sea World centre with his family, the veteran rocker made friends with a macaroni penguin - a bird easily identified by the bright yellow plumes on the top of its head.

Rod, 63, is currently unwinding Stateside after wrapping up a successful North American greatest hits tour. His next big gig will be in December, when he returns to South Africa to play his first show there in 25 years.
