Tufted Puffin off Mendocino Headlands
- On Monday, 26 May, about 11:00 AM, Stan Snyder spotted a Tufted Puffin
in the bay north of Mendocino Headlands. After watching the bird
dive, we saw it fly to the north most near island and landed just
below the rim. This is the green island with the tunnel through the
right side and the Western Gulls nesting above the "puffin nest." The
bird stretched and shook off water then disappeared into a hole. The
mouth of the hole is not visible from shore.
