We are so excited to see so many Puffins on the rocks in Elliston, Newfoundland. The Puffins spend most of its life at sea, covering a wide swath of ocean while feeding and only spending time on land to breed and hatch chicks.
When the birds come to land to breed, they undergo a change and begin sporting a bright orange and yellow beak, dressing up a bit to catch their husband. at the breeding ground, The females lay their single egg in a burrow. Within six weeks the chick gets an adult plumage and begin caring for itself.
My hubby is searching for Puffins to zoom in on them.
