Update November 15 2004: moved the pics of the Skua from the November 6th Texas pelagic to this page..

This subadult South Polar Skua Stercorcarius maccormicki was seen on the October 01, 2004 pelagic out of South Padre Island, Cameron County; first two images by Brad McKinney; the rest are by Andy Garcia:

NOTE: on Andy's "roll" of digital pics, the above shot is the last one of the skua; it is followed by some shots of various Masked Boobies, then the last image from the trip is this one - a Pomarine Jaeger chasing a Laughing Gull:
