"Sailing Above the Surface"

A Tufted Puffin streaks across the ocean in Homer, Alaska one sunny afternoon! There are two types of puffins in Alaska: Tufted and Horned. Their bills grow large and bright orange during breeding season, but return to a much smaller size and subdued hue when breeding season is through. They mostly come ashore only to nest and breed. Otherwise, they spend their lives at sea!
