Blustery & Brant

,

I just visited Hay Harbor, looking for our local lone Harbor seal who’s fond of fishing in the “Tank”.
I found instead these foraging Brant. They do remind me of their Canada goose cousins without the long neck; but note the delicate feathered white necklace.
Observed more and more these chilly months in estuaries and coves within Fishers Island.
