Atlantic Puffins | Kids Write
They can dive really, really deep. They can hold lots and lots of fish in their beaks at once. They will stay with the same puffin, and sometimes a dada puffin will be able to sit on the egg. They often return to the same burrow every year.
Some puffins look a little like penguins. The way you can tell them apart is their very beautiful, colorful beak. They can fly 55 miles per hour, but they spend most of their life in the sea fishing for their littles.
My favorite thing about puffins is their beautiful colorful beaks and how cute they are when they’re little because they’re the cutest little balls of feathers.

How interesting that, unlike penguins, they can fly!
The babies ARE cute, Fiona! Thank you for sharing your love for puffins with us.
Puffins are such beautiful birds. I had no idea they could fly that fast!
