HD web cams offer close-up views of Maine puffins
Question of the Day
PORTLAND, MAINE (AP) - Two high-definition cameras are streaming live video showing clown-like Atlantic puffins waddling, preening and nesting on a remote Maine island.
The Audubon Society and explore.org have teamed up to stream video from Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge. The island has the largest puffin colony in the U.S.
Audubon ornithologist Steve Kress says the video, which went live Wednesday, marks the first time high-definition cameras have been used in North America to stream video of Atlantic puffins.
One camera shows the seabirds on the island’s rocky ledges. The other is underground, inside a burrow showing a puffin in her nesting site.
Kress says the goal is to engage the public and spur interest in seabird restoration.
