Atlantic Puffin Machias

An Atlantic Puffin (Tratercula artica) prepares to feed its underground chicks a meal of fish on Machias Seal Island, New Brunswick. Puffins spend most of the year living on sea's surface, landing only on this tiny speck of land to lay a single egg. The birds have special hooks that let them hold onto several fish at once, while still hunting and catching even more fish. Puffins feed almost exclusively on fish, making the as reliant as fish stocks as human in the Bay of Fundy. Photo by William Drumm.
