Making a mid flight call this Black Brant was spotted flying along the shores of Qualicum. Ralph identified that the leg band was placed on the bird at the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, in Western Alaska. It was probably banded during the 1999 breeding season.
Make sure you keep your dogs off the beach during the Brant Season. Help them make it back to Alaska!
