Parasitic Jaegers

Cooly dominating their tundra territories, jaegers course gracefully and purposefully in search of food - lemmings, eggs, and chicks, primarily. These cousins of the gulls are impressive in their nonchalance and efficiency - both in pursuit of prey and in defense of their own nests and young.
