Concerning Stefan’s report today of migrating Brant at such a late date I have often wondered why Brant delay migrating up to the arctic. As everyone knows Snow Geese return to the arctic much sooner than Brant and yet both species nest at the same latitude. Does anyone have any insight as to why their migration schedules are so different?
