Water, Water, Not Everywhere In Winter


Brant (Branta bernicla), geese who visit the region in winter.A trio of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) in the mid-zone for scale. These two geese species share a genus and look superficially similar from afar.

This was fresh water rippling out into Jamaica Bay, and everybody was happy to get some. Last week it was still pretty cold: parking lot puddles, 9/10s frozen, were also being hit up for fresh (?) water by Brant.
