Arctic Parasitic Jaeger Chick Alaska

A newly hatched chick, a Parasitic Jaeger, blends in nicely with the colors of the Arctic landscape in Alaska, USA.

A common type of bird found in the Arctic is a Parasitic Jaeger. A Parasitic Jaeger chick nestles in the grassy vegetation in Alaska, USA where it displays its fluffy brownish-yellow down which covers its body when newly hatched.

The incubation for this chick was approximately three to four weeks which the male and female adult took part in. After a few days, this chick will leave its nest so it is not eaten by any predators and within about four weeks, the chick will take flight. When it reaches seven or eight weeks, the Parasitic Jaeger will be independent and take on life by itself.

Parasitic Jaeger (Stercorarius parasiticus) chick. Common in Arctic, Southwest and Aleutians Alaska.
