Pomarine Jaeger (dark morph) in Deadhorse, Alaska, 7/1/19.
This guy hover-hunted for a good minute or so pretty close to my father and I...made for plenty of nice clicks! This is a species that has webbed feet, like a gull, and nests in the Arctic tundra. The rest of its life is spent out in the open ocean! Jaegers, unfortunately, aren't nice to other birds...I've seen 3 species of Jaeger in the tundra hunting before, and they usually target the nests of other birds, usually shorebirds. Kind of odd IMO given that they have webbed feet.
