We estimated about 75 Puffins at Green Rock on August 16.
Total estimate for Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, - 160 Puffins in 2001
On Aug. 5, I set up a tent on Noddy I., above the Puffin nesting area, to use as a temporary blind. I was looking for Puffin leg bands. After about one hour, only 3 Puffins allowed me to check their legs with the spottong scope. One of the three carried a gray, aluminum band on its left leg. I returned to the island on Aug. 8 to see if I could check out more birds. My limited time there was not fruitful.
