Not your standard puffin shot.


Puffins, Elliston, Newfoundland, June 1, 2018.
Standing in front of their burrow.
Sort of a reverse American Gothic.

Fratercula arctica
The oldest Atlantic Puffin was over 33 years, 1 month old when it was sighted and identified by its band in Maine in 2010. It had been banded in the same state in 1977.
