Range Description

The Horned Puffin can be found in the northern Pacific Ocean, from the coast of Japan and south-west Canada in the south, up to and including the Chukchi Sea in the north. It breeds on most of the islands and coasts in this area, up to the north of its range on Wrangel Island, Russia, but can only be found breeding as far south as the Queen Charlotte Islands (Canada) and Sakhalinsk (Russia) (del Hoyo et al. 1996).
