AppearanceThe yellow bill plate grows before the breeding season and is shed later. They have a small fleshy black "horn" above their eyes. They have a white face with a dark line extending from the back of the eye and red feet.
DistributionThis species breeds on rocky islands off the coasts of Siberia, Alaska and British Columbia, in burrows, in rocky cavities or among rocks. It winters far out to sea. Feeding areas are usually located fairly far offshore from the nest. There is usually one chick and both parents feed the young.
StatusThe population of these birds has declined due to the introduction of rats onto some islands used for nesting.
FoodHorned puffins will return from hunting with several small fish in their beaks. They also eat squid and crustaceans.
