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.

Anyway, off the grid so I missed 9 days and just read about poor baby Gracie getting beat up on : ( I thought Puffs were nice to each other! Well, dern – sounds like Gracie, the little fluff tennis ball is holding her own now! Hope one of the parents keep an eye out on their burrow too, but especially their little youngster who’s been fending off the nasty Puffs. Shame on them!
