A visual size difference between the four types of puffins (puffinpalooza.com)

I made an updated visual chart to show the size difference between the four types of puffins (Tufted puffins, Horned puffins, Rhinoceros auklets and Atlantic puffins).

  • Atlantic Puffins are tiniest at about 10 to 11 1/2 inches (25-29 cm)
  • Rhinoceros Auklets are about 14 1/2 to 15 1/2 inches (37-39 cm)
  • Horned Puffins are around the same at 15 inches tall (38 cm)
  • Tufted Puffins are the biggest puffins at 16 inches tall (44 cm)
