If you look quickly, you might think this is a Canada Goose. But if you look closely, you will see the partial white ring around its short neck and its totally small, black head thus identifying it as a Brant. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
There were 6 Brants by the water’s edge at Rock Harbor Beach the other day. They feed as a flock mostly on eel grass found in the tidal flats at low tide.
The last photo shows one of them resting in the grass. Beautiful bird, don’t you think? Have you ever seen a Brant?

“If you are inclined to start your Wordle with a strategic bird word—i.e. one that contains many common letters—some good bets might be: Robin; Snipe; Brant; and Serin. Each of these words contains four out of the nine most commonly used letters in the English language. ”
