We departed Wildwood Park Marina at 8:30 a.m. on the first Cleveland Metroparks pelagic of the year. We had sensational and spectacular prolonged views of this immature Parasitic Jaeger in full aerial pursuit of gulls, resting on the water, and showing off hunting antics, at 3 miles offshore. Incredible bird. A Red-necked Phalarope flew by us at 2 miles offshore, to boot.
Parasitic Jaeger bullying a Ring-bill, but then retreating from a Herring Gull. Awesome.
