Tufted Puffin

Tufted Puffin - Fratercula cirrhata


Preobrazhenya bird cliffs, Chukotka, Russia, 18.8.2015, many birds.
Kolyuchin Island, Chukotka, Russia, 20.8.2015, many birds.


The largest of the three puffin species, the darkest of them as well.  A bird of the northern hemisphere.

The one above was bringing fish to it's nest burrow where there must have been chicks, as the other parent took off eventually once this one arrived.

They seem more at home in the water than on land!
