A short time ago a *BLACK BRANT* (the western form-currently considered a subspecies-of Brant) landed at the mudflats adjacent to the boat launch at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. A short while later it took off and flew to the east, well out over Jamaica Bay. While I was watching it fly away, it flew over an alcid floating on the water at some distance, which turned out to be a *RAZORBILL*.
