This puffin is all dressed up to go courting. He will lose his plumes when it is time to raise a family. Puffins are sociable little creatures and live in colonies where they make burrow-like nests in sandy or rocky cliffs. They are expert swimmers and divers and subsist on live fish which they catch in the water. Their wings are stubby and they seem barely able to fly. Tufted puffins are found along the coast from Kotzebue Sound in Alaska all the way to Baja California.
