SKUA - 8-30-05 Pickwick - bill - JRW

This is my only photo of our large, dark bird sitting on the water, it is either a Pomerine Jaeger or a Skua. Other photos will be brought on line as soon as possible. (Now see my next site for photos)I was impressed with the size of this big dark bird with a beer gut, thick neck, pale nape, large white cresents on upper and lower wings, relatively short tail and wide based wings. Hopefully the photos will be good enough for an ID or a good free for all as sides are taken;o)

Mike Todd has a photo of the above bird in flight at his site on pbase.

other sizes: small medium original auto
