The Parasitic Jaeger, although smaller in size, is very similar in appearance and behavior to the Pomarine Jaeger. Jaegers are known as seabirds of prey. These fast flying and quick manoeuvring seabirds will torment other seabirds, such as gulls to give up their catches. They breed on the tundras and on the arctic islands. These ocean predators are seen throughout the southern seas during the winter months. It has been seen as a rare vagrant in Cuba.
