The Word of the Day comes from MISS ICELAND by Auður Ava Olafsdóttir.
Puffins are any of three small species of alcids in the bird genus Fratercula with a brightly coloured beak during the breeding season. These are pelagic seabirds that feed primarily by diving in the water. They breed in large colonies on coastal cliffs or offshore islands, nesting in crevices among rocks or in burrows in the soil. Two species, the tufted puffin and horned puffin, are found in the North Pacific Ocean, while the Atlantic puffin is found in the North Atlantic Ocean.
I'm not sure why but I was certain that these beautiful little birds were extinct. So happy that they are still around.
