It's Atlantic Puffin Time but Trip Cancelled

Atlantic Puffins are one of my favorite seabirds and ordinarily this would be the time to get out and see them. These "parrots of the sea" live in the North Atlantic from Maine to Greenland to northern coastal Europe where they breed on rocky islands in underground tunnels and fly out to the sea to capture fish to bring back to their young. The trip to Machias Seal Island (where I photographed these puffins) with Capt. Andy of Bold Coast Charters is one of the best places to see and photograph puffins, but due to the virus, it is canceled until the end of July. However some people may still find ways to see puffins this summer.
