How a Puffin Eats Lunch
If you’re feeling hungry, head over to the Puffin Loafing Ledge for a little fresh fish.
Puffins mostly eat small fish. Herring and hake are favorite foods for Atlantic Puffins in Maine; in Newfoundland their favorite food is capelin. Puffins usually carry 6-10 fish per trip back to their burrow, but the record is a whopping 62 fish at once!
