    Even puffins experience the heartbreak and drama that comes with summer relationships. Tune into the bottom of this post for an exclusive livecam from Explore.org!

    4. You can do super cutesy stuff like look at each other longingly in public.

    5. But then you hear rumors that they might be fling-ing with someone else.

    Watch the livecam — made possible by the Audubon Society — to see a baby puffin in its burrow on Hog Island, Maine.

    It will probably fledge some time this week, which means you can watch it grow up before your very eyes!
