The Atlantic Puffin is sought after by many birdwatchers due to its bright-colored facial characteristics. The bird, which is native to the Atlantic Ocean and commonly found in Iceland, is nicknamed as "clown of the sea" and "sea parrot" due to its large colorful beak.
During spring and summer, the bird builds breeding colonies on the land, but spends most of its life by the sea. They are really good swimmers and can dive up to 200 feet deep.
Here are some photos of this lovely bird.
