Happy Bird-day - Atlantic puffin

I find these birds quite whimsical with their multi-coloured beaks and bright red feet.  I can see why it used to be called a sea parrot.  The beaks are only brightly coloured during the breeding season.  I like the way the illustrator (Audubon) has shown one peeking out of its burrow.
