A beautiful Tufted Puffin grooming itself.

Tufted Puffins can be found in many coastal habitats adjacent to the Washington coast and elsewhere in the northern Pacific, with the exception of estuaries.Tufted Puffin colonies fluctuate in size annually, based in part upon food supply and climatic events, such as El Niño. The Tufted Puffin is one of the most abundant and conspicuous seabirds nesting in the north Pacific. Although the Tufted Puffin is one of the most abundant seabirds breeding in Washington, it is among the least frequently seen, except from boats.

    Gorgeous shot Micci

  • Thank you so much Trudi! A comment and fav means so much coming from you my talented friend. I thought of you the other day. My husband and I were driving and passed a ranch with our beloved Gypsy horses out in their pasture. They were running and tossing their heads. A sight to see. You would have LOVED it :)
