Long-Tailed Skua

The Long-tailed Jaeger (Stercorarius longicaudus) (known as the Long-tailed Skua outside the Americas) is a seabird in the skua family Stercorariidae. This is the smallest of the skua family at 38-58 cm (15-23 in), depending on season and age. However, much of this, up to 29 cm (11 in), is comprised by the tail which may include the 15 cm (5.9 in) tail streamers of the summer adult.
