The Tufted Puffin is a type of Friend that first appeared in Guidebook 6.

Appearance

She has white hair with a black spot on top, black streak on the bottom right side, and white strands that come down to her shoulders. Yellow twin tails appear on the side of her hair, tied with matching red ribbons. Her bangs, which appear on the sides and middle of her head, give the impression of a tufted puffin's regular face. This includes a yellow and orange marking on the front bang resembling a beak, and red rimmed hair clips with grey "eyes". Her actual eyes are also grey.

She wears a dress with a V-shaped collar, a short button-up jacket with pcokets and buttons on the cuffs, a scarf, and gloves, all of which are black. She also wears red leggings and shoes. She has black wings that come out of her hair and a black tail.

In Real Life

The Tufted Puffin is a bird who live along the Washington and California coast, and anywhere else in the northern pacific, with a few exceptions. They are medium-sized, have dark feathers with patches of white near the head, and have a rounded head. The thick bill and legs have a bright orange and red color. They’re around the size of the typical Pigeon, however they can weigh twice as much, around 2 pounds (1 kg).

The Tufted Puffin is carnivorous, and they typically eat small fish, squids, octopuses, crabs, and jellyfish. They have also been reported to eat some other crustaceans, such as mollusks, sea urchins, and even algae. They typically dive to get their prey, using their wings to ‘fly’ through the water. They bring the prey they get and drop it off near the nest entrance, with their nesting normally being on slopes or cliffs, and even in crevices built from rocks, or even in shrubs.

Tufted Puffins are not currently endangered, but are at risk of being so, as the numbers of Tufted Puffins have dropped significantly near northern California. The reasoning behind it, especially farther north, is assumed to be rising populations of foxes and rats. However, in Alaska, populations of Tufted Puffins have been estimated to be over 1 million since the 1970s.
