Crash Landing with a Puffin

17

Atlantic puffins (Fratercula arctica) wouldn’t make the best flying instructors. These birds struggle to get in the air, beating their wings an average of 300 to 400 times a minute just to stay in flight! They also have trouble landing, often crashing into the water or rolling onto the grass, tumbling into any other puffins that may be in their way.
