Black And White Brants In Provincetown Harbor On Cape Cod.

These two Brants were swimming about in Provincetown Harbor looking for food every chance they got! (Click on blog link for other photos.)

A Brant is a small goose with a partial white ring on its black neck. During the winter, their diet consists mostly of eel grass found in the water, thus why they are constantly diving!

I’m sure a lot of people mistake them for a Canada Goose as the coloring is similar, but its that partial ring on its black neck that helps me identify them. Have you seen any Brants this winter?
