Atlantic Puffin Profile Bird Island Newfoundland

A profile of an Atlantic Puffin as it stands on the moss covered rock on Bird Island overlooking Bonavista Bay in Newfoundland, Canada.

A profile picture of this Atlantic Puffin standing on Bird Island in Newfoundland, Canada allows us to see the width of the bright orange bill and its cute matching colored feet. During the winter months, the bill on the Atlantic Puffin will change to a gray hue until the following spring when the orange shade returns.

An adult Atlantic Puffin will grow to be between 28 and 34 centimeters in length with the male being slightly larger than the female in size. The coloring of the plumage on an Atlantic Puffin is closely related to that of a penguin.
