Brants return to Kettle Cove

The Brant is a common winter resident of the Mid-Atlantic states but is rarely found north of Cape Cod. But each winter a handful of these cubby little characters show up on a beach in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I know of nowhere else in Maine that Brants are regularly found.

This year, the Brants didn’t arrive at Kettle Cove until the beginning of February. Birders in Maine are glad to see them back.
