In spring and summer, puffins go to land. They use sharp claws and beaks to dig out burrows for nests.
Clowns of the Sea
Puffins are nicknamed “clowns of the sea.” Do their colorful beaks remind you of clowns?
These small birds dive and swim underwater to catch fish. They float on the waves to rest.
When flying, a puffin can flap its wings 400 times in one minute.
