Mates stay together for many years. They use their beaks and feet to dig out a burrow for nesting. The female will lay one egg. They raise one chick each year. Both parents take care of the egg and the chick. In August, they return to the sea. Puffins are fast flyers. They can fly 55 mph! They flap their wings very fast. .....
