Branta bernicla hrota
Andrew Haydon Park, Ottawa, Ontario
2 June 2009
Having spotted a large flock of at least 100 brant flying over the Ottawa River earlier in the day, I was thrilled to find two brant mingling with dozens of Canada geese at Andrew Haydon Park. This was my first up-close look at this species, and the two brant were very accommodating.
