Puffin Jr.

Atlantic Puffin

Fratercula arctica


I've always wanted to see an Atlantic Puffin - one of these days I'll get up to Maine and see them on Seal Island - and finally got to see several on our pelagic trip. I'm prety sure that this is an immature bird based on the smaller bill. The dusky face and subtle colors are due to winter plumage.
