World Bird Wednesday and Watery Wednesday



In August we toured the northern part of Norway, 
and while on a whale safari out of Andenes, 
we also spotted this little puffin. 
Apparently they were supposed to have flown south already, 
but this one was obviously still there. 
It was a cute bonus to the many whales we also saw!

Inger, I just love this picture. There are puffins on the Oregon Coast at certain times of the year, but I've never seen one except in the Newport Aquarium.

I have never seen this bird, and I like its name, puffin. The beak is colorful too!

This duck looks like wood. I like the color of his beak. ^_^

Hi there - that’s another bird I have not seen in many years!

Have seen a few whales in the last months almost make up for that!

Cheers - Stewart M
