Could This Be Your Little Boy?

From the Seattle Times, the Woodland Park Zoo is seeking the identity of a little boy who saw a penguin  egg in the exhibit and told a zookeeper.  It was rescued and placed with foster parents.  If not, the baby chick would likely have died and/or been eaten by a crow or seagull. Unfortunately, the story does not say what day it was; the egg hatched on April 5th. 

From the story:
The boy is described as 7 or 8 years old with blonde, curly hair; he was wearing a white t-shirt and was extremely polite. “We are so grateful to this little boy for helping us save this precious bird. If a crow or seagull had scooped up the egg, it would have been a goner,” said Pardo.
Zoo officials would like to invite the youngster for a look behind the scenes to meet the chick he saved and help give it a name.

The zoo asks if  anyone knows the identity of the mystery boy, please contact the zoo by emailing:
