Tufted Puffin

This heavily built auk has head tufts that can be swept back and that do not impede underwater fishing. Bill and head decorations arc used only for display. With its muscular body, the bird cannot take off from the water without a wing-flapping run. The birds breed in colonies on rocky islands, and spend the winter out in mid-ocean.

• NEST a burrow or a hollow in a rock crevice, lined with grass and feathers.

• Distribution Breeds on W. and E. coasts of n. Pacific Ocean. Winters at sea in n. Pacific.
