Of course, we have no idea what this bird will do, or when, but IF it's any consolation.........
The 1997 Brant at Ann Morrison Park has ebird entries from 15 Nov thru 20 Dec, and this assumes they were all the same little beastie
IOW it *could* stick around for awhile, eh? ja? =)

Brant - yes!
Scanned two flocks of Canadas along State - 40 birds in the center then a group of 50 just west. (Nr Vistor's Parking area.) No Brant, but checked behind the building where there were another approx. 40 Canada Geese partly on the asphalt, partly on much smaller (compared to front) grassy area. And there it was! (Thanks Marcia Lyons.)
It took off on its own (despite our care to not disturb it or the other geese), looped around and then joined the aforementioned group of 40 right along State St.
Great bird that I love from the coast but never thought I'd see in Idaho! Thanks for the finders and others from yesterday who posted on eBird.
