Observation details

After an hour of scoping suddenly all the hundreds of birds lifted off - including the egrets and crows - ML thought probably an eagle - that is what usually sends all the birds into the air - but it was this jaeger - at one point it chased a gull within 30 ft of me! Yearbird - and my target bird!
