|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|In this past month I tried without success to find this rare goose (for my area) which was reported. Yesterday I found it in a local park. The light was not fantastic but I managed few photos. It was first time for me to see and photograph this beautiful goose.|
An abundant small goose of the ocean shores, the Brant breeds in the high Arctic tundra and winters along both coasts. The Brant along the Atlantic have light gray bellies, while those off the Pacific Coast have black bellies and were at one time considered a separate species.
