Observation details

Crazy sighting. I spent 3 days looking for White Tailed Ptarmigan; somehow I saw a Jaeger and not a Ptarmigan here. Perhaps the Jaeger felt homesick for its tundra habitat up north. It was foraging for various bugs near 12,000 ft above sea level. Temperatures were below freezing with near 20 mile per hour winds.
