Parasitic 8 miles off CLE

Cleveland Metroparks 2nd pelagic of the year rolled out of the Wildwood Park marina at 8 a.m., and headed for offshore gull flocks. By 10 a.m., with a strong line of Ring-billed and Herring Gulls coming into our wake after chum, we caught the attention of an immature Parasitic Jaeger. Giving outstanding looks and classic aerial pursuit, this jaeger was successful in prompting Ring-billed Gulls to disgorge food. At one point, the jaeger took a pass right over the boat!
