... they are about three years old. At that time, they are sexually mature and come back to land so that they can mate and raise young.

Puffins can't fly well and they don't do well on land. The drink sea water and eat fish, so they are happiest out at sea.

I really enjoyed our very knowledgeable guide on the puffin tour.

Food for thought?
