Live Puffin Nest Cam - Seal Island, Maine.

This is a live feed of a wild nesting Atlantic Puffin. Atlantic Puffins spend a majority of their time at sea. They come to land every spring to breed. Breeding takes place on northern seacoasts and rocky islands.
Identification: colorful pigeon-sized birds.
Breeding Information: They lay one egg in their burrow homes. The male and female share incubation duties. Incubation is about 40 days. Once the baby "puffling" hatches both parents will feed it a diet of fresh fish for about 6 weeks. After that 45 days the "puffling" is mature enough to leave the nest. To make a donation please visit audubon.org.

Egg laid May 15th. Estimated to hatch around June 23rd 2018.

This is a puffin from Hornøya, Norway. Very close so it can be studied

Gracie left for the ocean (fledged) some minutes after midnight on Sept 1st.
This morning Mom came to feed her with the beak full of fresh fish, but found nobody at home. So she returned to sea with it.
This season is over. Welcome bak in April – 19
