There once was.........

Atlantic Puffin

There once was a Puffin, just the shape of a muffin, who lived on an island in the bright blue Sea!                                                                                                
He ate little fishes, that were most delicious,and he had them for Supper and he had them for Tea!

I would sing this little song to the students who attended my preschool years ago.  I would show them Newfoundland on the World Map.

The Atlantic Puffin is the Provincal Bird for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  It is a seabird species of the auk family. The Atlantic Puffin is a pelagic bird that feeds primarily by diving for fish, but also eats other sea creatures, such as squid and crustaceans.  It is the only Puffin species which is found in the Atlantic ocean.
