The juvenile jaeger flew past the same location at 5:15 PM headed towards sky harbor airport. Its plumage matched that of the juvenile parasitic that was off parking lot #1 at Wisconsin Point this morning, which was identical in size and wingspan to an adult light morphology parasitic when they were flying side by side and chasing one another at Wisconsin Point. Tim Oksiuta reported adult and juvenile parasiticus at Wisconsin Point yesterday (Thursday) morning and the juvenile was also seen near the sky harbor airport Tuesday evening (so far the adult has only been seen on the Wisconsin side).
