Brown Skua / Stercorarius maccormicki/ Stercorarius antarcticus

http://cr2chicago.weebly.com/with-every-drop
Brown Skuas are particularly incredible (and shockingly monstrous) animals:
* Kleptoparasitism (a fairly self-explanatory term, I must say) is theft of food or prey obtained by another animal. Skuas (along with many other seabirds, including the Great Frigatebird and the Chinstrap Penguin) steal other birds' catches, harassing them until they drop the fish they've collected in their crop.

* In case your opinion of Brown Skuas wasn't already low enough, these birds are ovivores, feeding on the eggs of penguins and other marine birds that happen to nest near to their colonies. They will also eat penguin chicks, striking from above and carrying them off before their parents can notice.

* As brutal as Brown Skuas can be, they're social animals that are remarkably tender with their mates and offspring (as are many seabirds). Courting involves complicated calls and displays, and once the eggs have been laid parents share the duties of defending the nest, incubation, brooding, and feeding the chicks once they hatch.
