Description

I submitted this bird to the LBRC as a Parasitic, based on what appeared to me as a slimmer overall bird, relatively thinner bill and rufous wash to the undertail coverts. I am no jaeger expert and the only Committee members I heard from voted to accept (Parasitic). I would like other opinions though...Greg?
