Fly With Bird Stamps

By January 26, 2013

Follow me on:

The U.S. Post Office has released a new bird stamp - the tufted puffin is featured on the 86-cent stamp, good for first class postage up to three ounces. Robert Giusti of Bridgewater, Connecticut is the artist who created the design, which includes a pair of breeding plumage puffins sporting their namesake tufts.

The tufted puffin is a member of the Alcidae bird family, which includes all puffins and auks. While the Atlantic puffin is often more well-known, the tufted puffin is a popular seabird in its Pacific range. While you might be able to see these colorful birds on stamps now, learn where you can see wild puffins so you can add this bird to your life list!
