Puffins nesting on the Treshnish Isles
The Treshnish Islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland are home for the Atlantic Puffins pictured here. Outside of the breeding season, these seabirds live most of their lives at sea, resting on the waves, when not swimming and fishing. The record (in Canada) for the number of fish that a puffin can hold in its bill at one time, is reported to be 61. Apparently, they were very small fish.
