Brant at Duck Hollow, Allegheny County, PA
This juvenile Brant, representing just the second record for Allegheny County, was a surprise find by the venerable Jack
Solomon at Duck Hollow on 19 November. The only other record for the county was of a bird on the Youghiogheny River at Boston
in the first week of January 2002. It took a bit of waiting, but the bird eventually approached the observation area in the
late afternoon and allowed this portrait.
