Tufted Puffins!

August 22, 2006

They call them "poor man's penguins" but I believe these beautiful birds may be the most strikingly colored sea birds in the northern hemisphere. Here on South Marble Island in Glacier Bay National Park the nesting season is drawing to a close, and these adult tufted puffins will be leaving soon. Seems fall (and winter) may be coming early this year...
