The juvenile Brant was still at Shelburne Bay this afternoon in the
same location as Larry Haugh reported yesterday. It was with a group
of Canada geese that were in the water, but the Brant remained on
shore for most of the time I was watching it.
7-8 snow buntings were also on the rock
1 Lesser Scaup
1 Black Duck
4 Hooded Mergansers circled over several times
A few Bufflehead and Common Mergansers
1 Greater Yellowlegs
