    Arctic skua at Svalbard, autumn.

    Realy agile in the air and hunts other buirds..
    (harasses its victims) Haha. ;)

    Saw them alot hunting other birds that where crying out loud and just wished to get away hehe, they where realy mean sometimes but ofcorse they whant to show who, who is the king in the air.

    They are realy good at catching food also if you trow it up in the air, they normaly are abel to catch it befor it land.
