Brant Geese

Out and about on one of our adventures, while I was not yet ready to go home...
we happened upon these beautiful
Brant Geese




Similar to the Canadian Geese, 
it is easy to tell them apart, the Brant Geese are visibly smaller and have different markings!

  1. A brant [sic] new species to me. We don't get much variety here -- either in ducks or geese.

  2. Hello, I think the Brant Geese are prettier than the Canada Geese. Great sighting and photos! Enjoy your day!

  4. I wonder if they're as territorial as Canadian geese

  7. I have never seen these kind of geese before. They are really pretty too. I love that you have so many different kinds of birds and you know their names. I hope you are having a very nice day today Debbie.

  8. I can really understand the difference from Canada geese from these pictures! (I'm glad you weren't ready to go home.)

  9. Beautiful! We don't have them here so I've never seen one in person.

  10. They truly are beautiful. I have only seen them at great distances, so the markings didn't really show up well.

  13. They are surely handsome creatures, Debbie.
    I saw our first flock of geese fly over just the other day.
    They were flying in a southern direction though. I wonder what this means about our spring?????
    Happy day to you, my friend!
    xo.

  14. Wow, I love the photos of the Brant Geese; they are very different from the ones that live across the street from us. The colors and markings are pretty.
    We actually have four geese that march around. One is pure white and isn't always with the others. I suspect it is a older one and has a light limp.
    Sending hugs your way!
