Bird Species Spotlight: Atlantic Puffin
by Jake Jacoby | October 26, 2016
There are four species of puffins in the world: Atlantic; horned; tufted; and the rhinoceros auklet. Only the Atlantic puffin is found in the North Atlantic Ocean and is the smallest of the species; the other three puffins are found in the Pacific Ocean. All puffins have a lifespan of 20 years or more and all are “pelagic,” which means that they live on the open sea and only return to the land in order to breed. Continue reading »

Their breeding behavior is equally complicated with multiple males and females combining efforts to raise young in a single nest. Continue reading »

While it has a devoted—but small—following in parts of the upper Midwest, its lack of development and remoteness mean that it’s never particularly crowded, even at peak color. I’ve been to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the fall numerous times over the past 15 years, and have used that experience to co-author a photographer’s guide to the region. Continue reading »
