Puffins, Nature Watch Series

The official descriptions reads:

Bobbing on cold ocean waves with their brightly colored bills and white-and-black feathering, puffins might seem similar to parrots or penguins. But puffins are unique members of the family of seabirds known as auks. The three types of puffins—Atlantic, tufted, and horned puffins—all have short, stubby wings that are better suited for propelling them through the waters of the northern seas than flying over land. Although puffins travel to islands to nest, they are unlikely to be seen on the mainland or even ocean coasts. Despite their minimal interaction with humankind, puffins are still threatened. Actions such as overfishing and pollution are hurting the puffin population. Learn more in this edition of Nature Watch.
