Atlantic puffins, like all puffins, are known for their ornate beaks, but did you know that the beaks are only that colorful during breeding season? In the autumn and winter when the birds are out to sea, they shed the bright outer parts of their bills, regrowing the decorations for the next breeding season. Nature comes up with the strangest things!
