Puffins on a Stamp


Hi all, Benny here. I’ve been looking at several stamps offered by the Postal Service this year on http://www.beyondtheperf.com/ and I came across an intriguing creature – the Tufted Puffin. They have such an interesting look that I thought I’d share it with you.

The Tufted Puffin may look unusual, but they’re truly unique birds. They spend most of their time in or near the sea, diving up to 200 feet underwater for their meals, often choosing to dine while submerged.

These remarkable sea birds have a distinctive look with yellow feathers that sweep above and behind their eyes. I’m sure if I had their sturdy wings and webbed feet, I’d be just as great a swimmer as they are. I think I’ll stick to dry land to have my dinner this evening though, and leave deep-sea dining to the birds. Literally!

Enjoy the stamp, folks!
