Is this a gull? (Merlin says it's a Jaeger)


Recommended Posts

Although I agree with the above, locally, there's some discussion about this being a long-tailed or a parasitic with no consensus yet.  Hard to claim a lifer on eBird without that dang it.  ?

Note that there are only two white primary shafts showing on the upperwing, very limited white on the underwing, overall cold grayish-brown tones with no bright or rusty tones even on the nape, heavily barred undertail coverts, etc. plus overall shape and structure seem right.
