Tufted Puffin

On a trip from Seward, saw wonderful seabirds. Had never seen these before or the Horned Puffin, although the lasting memory was the retreating glaciers.

The tufted puffin also known as crested puffin, is a relatively abundant medium-sized pelagic seabird in the auk family found throughout the North Pacific Ocean.
It is one of three species of puffin that make up the ''Fratercula'' genus and is easily recognizable by its thick red bill and yellow tufts.
