skua attacks

19 July 2021

The Arctic Skua is an impressive bird. Here, it is the top predator among the birds. It feeds on other birds and a pair is able to kill adults of common eiders or barnacle geese. They also have an impressive defense if you get close to their nest or young. Christoph is hit twice by the feet. from now onwards, he bends deeper if the Great Skua (in the New World called Great Jaeger) comes close.
In Kongsfjorden many birds are ringed. Also this skua. With a ring yellow XX and a geolocator on the other legg to register the migration route.
