To my knowledge, no penguin reports have been accepted in North America or Europe.
Several years ago, in preparing information for our WBRC review of the Humboldt Penguin sighting in WA [in 2011], I solicited info on penguin sightings. Here’s what I compiled - again, all of unaccepted or unreviewed records. The Washington reports are tabled at present, pending later review.
Pacific:

Alaska:

· Humboldt Penguin – 18 July 2002 – see NAB 56, p 402 for details


British Columbia:

· Humboldt Penguin: 1978 Vancouver Island

· Humboldt Penguin 1944 at Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands), British Columbia


Washington:

· Humboldt Penguin - 21 August 2011 Willoughby Rock, Grays Harbor [currently under consideration

· 1985 off Washington

· 1984 May & June – at Willoughby Rock

· Humboldt Penguin: 1975 near Long Beach, Washington


Oregon: confirmed no reports reviewed


California:

· Jackass Penguin: 3-16 Feb 1981 – Pt. Reyes, Marin County – Bill Pullman


El Salvador:

· Magellenic Penguin – 7 June 2007 – Ahuachapan Department, El Zaite beach.



Panama:

· Galapagos Penguin [no date/location info gathered]



Columbia:

· Humboldt Penguin [no date/location info gathered]



Atlantic/Gulf Coast:

Rhode Island – confirmed no reports reviewed

Maryland/DC – confirmed no reports reviewed

Pennsylvania – confirmed no reports reviewed

Mississippi – confirmed no reports reviewed

[in addition to those who did respond explicitly, we know of no other reports or mentions from anywhere on east coast]

Europe: confirmed no reports
