  1. My wife and I observed two Brants in the slough at Moss Landing Beach on January 25th. We made the observation from the last parking turnout before the road ended near the mouth of Elkhorn Slough. While we were observing these two individuals, 7 Brants flew over the slough from south to north. When I reported our observations to a local birder, I was advised that our observations may be of interest to other local birds. Hence the post.

  2. I wish to amend my earlier post. We observed the Brants on January 26th, not January 25th. Also, we thought our observations would be of interest to other local birders. Other local birds may or may not be interested on our observations.
