Brant (Branta bernicla) are small geese that breed on the Arctic tundra and spend their winters on the ocean shores. New York shores hosted a large number of brant in 2017 and 2018, and I filmed them on Staten Island, at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge and Broad Channel American Park in Queens, and at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn from May 2017 to March 2018.
