The White Puffin


Suzanne pointed this white puffin out to me. It is gorgeous!

Then I read the sad story. His coloring made the other birds pick on him (which apparently puffins do sometimes), so he settled in with a partner. They aren't sure if it is breeding partner (opposite sex) or just living partner. Apparently sometimes single puffins will roost with same sex partners in order ot make the colony happy without too many free range males mucking up the couples.

In any case, I'm glad he found a friend and they are happy in the colony now.
