INTERESTING FACTS
The Pomarine jaeger was first described in 1815 by Coenraad Jacob Temminck, Dutch aristocrat and zoologist. It will fly at the head of a human or other intruder approaching its nest. Successful reproduction occurs only in one of every three or four years in a typical lemming cycle, and only in areas where lemming populations reach high concentrations. A group of skuas are collectively known as a "shishkab" of skuas.
