Tufted Puffin by davecbend
Tufted Puffin
This beautiful bird achieves its most remarkable coloration during the summer months when breeding adults begin to vie for each other’s attention. The feathers on their faces will turn bright white and they will grow very elegant-looking tufts of yellow feathers behind each eye. Their parrotlike bill becomes more vibrant-looking, adding a green bill casque and rosette. During the winter months, however, the puffin can have a dramatically different appearance. The bright colors will be replaced with dark and dusky feathers. The tufts for which the bird is named will disappear completely.

Rhinocerous Auklet by davecbend
Rhinocerous Auklet

One of the most intriguing things about this small bird may be its name. First, it is not a true auklet, which is a species of plankton-feeding seabirds common to the Pacific coast which includes the Cassin’s Auklet. This bird is actually more closely related to the puffin and feeds on fish and squid instead of plankton. The “rhinoceros” part of its name references the small “horn” that is clearly visible at the base of the beak on breeding adults.

This species nests all along the coast of Oregon, digging long burrows in the soil of rocky outcroppings or finding refuge in natural caves. The bird is most active at night, making it one of several nocturnal seabirds, an adaptation which presumably helps it avoid predators. The Rhinoceros Auklet is also notable for one other thing: it is the only known surviving species in its genus Cerorhinca. Related birds were common throughout North America beginning in the mid-Miocene Epoch, or approximately 15 million years ago. Over time, all but the Rhinoceros Auklet have gone extinct.

I have always liked taking pictures. Had kinda lost interest in it but my friend Doug has gotten me back in to it so thanks Doug. Check out his photo's snowboundhound70.deviantart.co…. Doug and I have been friends for like 25 years we live 700 miles away from each other and its funny that we will take the same pics of things on the same day 700 miles away.Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to look at my pictures and for the faves and watches I have reached 3000 favourites thank you everyone . Trying to get back to taking pictures again after my hand surgerys.
