POTD: Heads-Up! Puffin.

From 2019 03 01 Iceland

Today's photo-of-the-day is from Kevflavik Airport in Reykjavik, Iceland. That's a puffin poking down from the ceiling in the baggage claim area in way of greeting arriving passengers. Iceland's puffin population is estimated at 10 million birds. The human population in the whole country is only about 340,000, so it's natural that puffins get a lot of attention. Admission: we didn't see any puffins. The best time to see puffins in Iceland is the summer. We were there in winter to see the Northern Lights. More on that to come.
