Atlantic Puffins

The Atlantic Puffin (formerly the Common Puffin) is a small, pigeon-sized seabird which lives on the open ocean throughout the majority of the year, breeding in colonies on northern seacoasts and rocky islands from April to mid-August.

Puffins do not come to land outside of the breeding season, flying, swimming or riding the ocean surface throughout the year regardless of weather. Puffins lay one egg that is incubated in turn by each adult for approximately 39-43 days.

Couples often reunite at the same burrow site each year.
