Join us on Thursday, June 29th, at 2pm ET / 11am PT as we host a live chat with Project Puffin Founder and Director Steve Kress!
By Isabel Brofksy, Project Puffin Research Supervisor on Seal Island The past week on Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge has been an exciting one for our smallest alcid, the Black Guillemot (Cepphus grylle). On Wednesday, June 29th, a cool, rainy morning, the Audubon Guillemot Burrow cam’s first chick pushed its way out of its egg
Little puffling Joy spread abundant happiness this summer, and viewers were immediately smitten with her fluffy feathers and playful personality around the Puffin Burrow. One fan in particular, AnneMa, took notice of a piece of cardboard brought into the burrow and which Joy become fond of, using it as a toy of sorts.
After an amazing (and adorable) season in the Audubon Puffin Burrow, the little chick Joy has fledged, leaving her home Tuesday evening on a big journey out to sea. Catch the video highlight of her preening her feathers before she steps out into the night.
