When they were trying to bring Puffins back to islands on the US east coast they decided to do so with dummies. Puffins are very social, and as a result would want to land on islands that already have puffins. The dummies looked real from a distance, but were seriously lacking up close, held up by a single peg. Puffins, being social and wanting to fit in, followed suit.

    Puffins are awesome! Got to see them up close a couple of decades ago while rock-climbing on the island of Lundy, off the north coast of Devon in the UK. Apparently in some places they are plentiful enough to eat, and puffin pie is a delicacy.
