Best known for their iconic beaks, Tufted Puffins can be found up and down the northern Pacific Coast from Alaska to California... and in the Bronx Zoo. These colorful birds have special adaptations that allow them to hold their breath for up to a minute while diving, to fly up to 55 mph, and to carry multiple fish at a time-- one record-breaking puffin was seen carrying 62 fish in its beak!
