Birds

Tufted Puffin

Tufted Puffins are migratory seabirds of open ocean waters in the winter and coastal islands and rocky cliffs in the summer breeding season. They are the largest and most distinctive in appearance of the three puffin species, and the one that migrates the furthest south in eastern Pacific waters to as far as California’s Channel Islands. They have several other common names—old man of the sea, sea parrot, and the name given to them by the Aleuts, toporkie.
