This puffin video was filmed at the rare colony that you can walk to, in Elliston , Newfoundland. No boat needed. At Witless Bay, where you do need a boat, you can see them the way Audubon did almost 200 years ago. Puffins have been compared to footballs. They are similar in shape, and size, and movement. But puffins have a charm that an inflated pig bladder just can't match.
There are three species of puffins found in North America. The Atlantic Puffin is found in the east, as well as in Europe. Two others, the Horned Puffin and Tufted Puffin are found in the Pacific, especially in Alaska. They are featured in a 2009 Raven On The Mountain video, In The Land of the Barking Seals.
If you enjoy this film, you may like its sister film, NORTHERN GANNETS, placed on You Tube because I just couldn't resist using a proprietary sound track for it.
