The puﬃn, sometimes called a sea parrott, is a black-and-white feathered auk bird with a large (and colorful) parrot-like beak.
Puﬃns spend most of their lives out at sea, resting on the waves when not swiming. The only come ashore to breed. While hunting for food, the puﬃn can dive to deapths of 60 metres, usually in search of herring or sand eels.
The Atlantic Puﬃn can be found from the north-easturn coast of the United States and Canada, across to Iceland and over to the northwest of Europe, includeing Ireland and the UK.
When puﬃns come ashore to start a family they will dig out a burrow using their sharp claws and beaks. Sometimes they will ‘borrow’ one from a rabbit, and on some ocasions, even ﬁght for one.
Puﬃns build a nest at the back of the burrow and line it with feathers and grass. Both parents will then take it in turn to incabate the egg for the next 36-45 days until the puﬄing haches.
Puﬃns give birth to one chick per season.
