Here are the REAL photos of the puffins from Grimsey Island.
As I mentioned, terns and puffins share cliffs — and sometimes gulls do too, so if you see any white birds, those are either terns or gulls.
Puffins are not especially graceful on land…
But they ARE beautiful! Notice how the parents hold the fish they’ve caught for their chicks? They have ridges in their beaks, so they can dive and catch a fish, store it across the beak — and repeat the process until the beak is full. Makes a very organized offering, don’t you think?
