They can be seen flying low over land or sea. Arctic skuas are also known as parasitic jaegers: Parasitic because of its habit of stealing food from other birds, termed kleptoparasitism, and jaeger, derived from the German word for hunter, because of its predatory nature. Skuas can be see on moorlands on Scottish islands and in the far north of Scotland: seen around the coasts during Spring and Autumn migration. Arctic skuas have two pointed central tail feathers that stick out beyond their main tail and broad white ‘flashes’ on the underside of the wings.
