The feeding of tufted puffin and horned puffin nestlings was studied on two islands of Tauyskaya Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk: at Talan Island in 1999–2004 and 2006 and Umara Island in 1994 and 1996–1997. The composition of the puffin diet during the breeding season was determined. The main fish species in the diet were determined and the seasonal and annual dynamics of the occurrence of the items was analyzed. Comparative data on biological characteristics, such as the size, weight and age of the fish caught by these birds, as well as the size and composition of food samples, were collected. Differences between the age groups of fish in the diets of the two puffin species were revealed. Conditions for forming of seabird feeding base in Tauyskaya Bay were described.
