Welcome puffin baby #2!

Baby tufted puffin at the Seattle Aquarium

It’s official…the second tufted puffin chick has hatched! Seattle Aquarium staff team continue to monitor both chicks and their parents very closely during this critical time.

Fun facts: Puffin babies are covered in fluffy, down feathers and eat whole fish brought into the burrow by their parents. Parents do not regurgitate the food, but rather collect several fish in their bills to feed their chicks.
