The Horned Puffin is similar in appearance to the Atlantic Puffin; the bill of the bird is yellow at the base and red at the tip. It is a pelagic seabird that feeds primarily by diving for fish. This species nests in colonies on rocky islands off the coasts of Siberia, Alaska and British Columbia, in burrows, in rocky cavities or among rocks. It winters far out to sea. There is usually one chick and both parents feed the young. Horned Puffins will return from hunting with several small fish in their beaks. They also eat squid and crustaceans.
