Puffins

By rgg
Atlantic Puffins Machias seal island Lower bay of Fundy Maine June2018.
Spending the autumn and winter in the open ocean of the cold northern seas, the Atlantic puffin returns to coastal areas at the start of the breeding season in late spring. It nests in clifftop colonies, digging a burrow in which a single white egg is laid. The chick mostly feeds on whole fish and grows rapidly. After about six weeks it is fully fledged and makes its way at night to the sea. It swims away from the shore and does not return to land for several years.

You go ashore and 4 people are allowed to Photograph from small wooden blinds that have sliding windows that open so you can take pictures the birds are close
and you can get some great images you spend 30 minutes in the blind great time.
