'Black Brant' #1 from Long Island, New York


Brant #1 Riis Park, Brooklyn County, New York.






Family matters.


After we had studied Brant #2, the flock was disturbed by a ground keeper and when they settled, we noticed these three bird march in front of us as a group. We believe these represent Brant #1 (center bird), the candidate hybrid Brant #1a (right hand bird) and the Atlantic Brant mate (left hand bird). The larger size of the left hand adult goose suggests it is a male.
