Brant (Branta bernicla): Uncommon during spring migration, with some birds lingering into summer. Rare during fall migration. Very Rare in winter along the outer coast and Glacier Bay.

Migration routes seem to favor western part of the region and/or the outer coast.

Found almost exclusively on or near salt water.

According to the Birds of the World entry on Brant, most, if not all, of the Brant that pass through Southeast Alaska are on their way from or to Izembek Lagoon on the Alaska Penninsula. During fall migration, most Brant make a direct cross-Pacific flight from Izembek to their wintering locations on the West Coast. In spring, the migration takes more time with a greater number of stops.

  • Uncommon in Fall at GB and Yakutat?
  • Haines U R U R?
