Brant (photo by Chuck Tague)Remember this bird from my early November “What to Look For” list?   It’s a brant, a very unusual bird for Pittsburgh.

Back on October 28th I mentioned these birds because the first time I ever saw one was at Yellow Creek State Park in early November.  Little did I know that Jack Solomon would find a juvenile brant today at Duck Hollow on the Monongahela River

I can’t take any credit for predicting this.  Chuck Tague reminded me to look for the unexpected.
