Parasitic Jaeger (Stercorarius parasiticus)
Parasitic Jaeger (Stercorarius parasiticus [monotypic])
Skuas and Jaegers (Stercorariidae)
Vestamager, Amager, Denmark
Adult light phase. Unmistakable here with the completely dark underwing coverts, the clean white belly, well-marked breast-band, moderately long pointed central tail feathers and not the least, the overall proportions of the bird, looking slim but strongly build.
Rare to get it overhead like this on Amager. Seen from Sydtårnet.
It circled a few times overhead before it continued toward southeast high up, still circling. 11:15.
Discovered by Ingrid Scheel Døssing.
