Atlantic Puffins (Fratercula arctica) sure are beautiful. They are not very common in my parts, but on my last two fishing trips I have seen many puffins. Very surprising and I hope this means that the number of birds are increasing after years of decreasing populations.

Check out my other bird pictures here.
