I have always been a fan of birds. I like to look for and at them, take pictures of them. I am by nature curious and love to learn about the world around me. Birds infinitely fascinate me. Recently, I ordered the National Geographic Field Guide To Birds for Washington State and Oregon. I was really excited to get this book. By the time it arrived I think I may have been drooling, just a little.
On the cover of this little book you can find two of the most adorable puffins, the Tufted Puffins, native to my area. I fell in love them! They are so cute and quirky. One has his head cocked to the side looking at the camera with curiousity. It is sooooooooooo cute! I went to the index and found their page. This is where I began my research into these little characters but by no means is this where my research ended. I have been reading books, websites, pamphlets, educational studies; all about the puffin.
Puffinpalooza.com is a place where I can share my adventure learning about the Puffin with others! I hope to find some fellow puffin admirers or perhaps even encourage people to get interested in this bird.
If you are a Puffin expert, please share with me information, pictures, etc. If you are a puffin novice, explore with me. Pictures, facts, locations, habits, everything… I want to learn and see all I can about these most lovable seabirds, the clown of the sea as they are nicknamed. =) I hope you will join me on my journey today and come back from time to time to see how far we have traveled.
