Horned Puffin

Horned Puffin

National Geographic Puffin

Dueling puffins flare their wings and part their beaks in a muddy tussle on Skomer Island, Wales. Most puffin fights start over competing claims to a burrow. A bite to the neck usually settles the issue.

[ sometimes even love seems like fighting ]
