Two birds from the National Aviary on the North Side are about to have their 15 minutes of fame.
Simon, an African penguin, and Fleury, a snowy owl, will appear Tuesday on NBC's “Today” show in a segment about winter animals. They will be accompanied to the taping in New York City by Cathy Schlott, the aviary's manager of animal training.
Simon and Fleury, who is named after Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc Andre Fleury, will travel by car to Manhattan, where they'll stay at the Affinia 50 Hotel, which welcomes creatures for entertainment appearances in the city.
“Today” airs weekdays from 7 to 10 a.m.
