  1. Texas Bird Family says:

    Maine is the only state where there are puffins, so unless you are out at sea in Maine, you probably won’t see puffins, these are probably Cormorants.

  2. Ava says:

    They’re probably migrating Double-Crested Cormorants.

  3. Click on the picture, you might see it better. It looks like it has a little bit of white on it’s belly.

  4. Ava says:

    It’s not a Puffin, Puffins don’t live in Virginia.

    • It was in Maine,that’s where Atlantic Puffins mostly live.Sorry,I put the wrong place on the submission,I normally use that location because live there.It was at:Mount desert island,Acadia national park,Maine.I just maybe thought those were Atlantic puffins.Plus they are really cool birds,&I have always wanted to see them.

      • Ava says:

        Well, they do live in that area, but they don’t live on Mount Desert Island. They were most likely Cormorants.
        Puffins are really neat birds. If I ever get the chance to see them then I’m going to do it.

  5. No,they live on all the coast of Maine.

      Well, according to Acadia National Park Wildlife, you have to take a boat to an island to see them. It says, “Puffins are seen off the coast of Maine. You must take a boat to one of these islands. Puffins aren’t seen on or from Mount Desert Island.” It looks as though you were on a boat though, so I guess it’s possible that they’re Puffins. It’s just hard to tell so I’m not sure.

      • We weren’t on a boat,It was like a rock(It’s all made of rock,& On the Atlantic ocean Thing built across the water to a lighthouse,& it took them 94 YEARS to build it.So,Yes it was possible that they were puffins.

  6. I looked at the range.

  7. I think i might have deleted that photo.

  8. Texas Bird Family says:

    These are cormorants, the shape is a cormorant, puffins are not that shape, and the beaks aren’t big enough to be a puffin.

    I agree, probably DCCO
