Puffin birds, Fratercula arctica ©Paula Kuitenbrouwer
Atlantic Puffins, closely sitting together confirming their bond. These beautiful birds can be spotted during summer at coastal areas of Ireland. The genus name Fratercula is Latin for ‘little brother’, referring to the bird’s black and white plumage which resembles monastic robes. Puffins populations have drastically declined due to habitat destruction and exploitation (eggs, feathers and meat) during the 19th century and early 20th century.
