A Very Puffin Christmas

Happy holidays to all--and yes, for you Warriors out there, that does include Christmas. I'd apologize for the absence, but I think it would be better for me to just shut up and hand over my present: a link to "Not At Home," my long-promised-and-now-finally-available-online Living Bird story on Steve Kress and the Audubon Society's Seabird Restoration Project, better known as "Project Puffin." Enjoy the photos in particular,  because they are far, far better than anything I could possibly produce with a camera.

Puffins are actually perfectly capable of flight, but if it helps you feel more Christmasy, think of them as belonging on the Island of Misfit Toys ("How'd you like to be a Bird That Can't Fly? I swim.")

In our next installment: my own really bad photographs of a rare bird in the wrong hemisphere. Be here. Aloha!
