Found offshore, in 15 to 25°C waters (Ref. 356). Forms breeding colonies on oceanic islands. Does not typically trail ships (Ref. 91362). A less specialized kleptoparasite with varied feeding behavior, including surface-seizing. Mimics skuas to successfully kleptoparasitize other seabirds; typically attacks from a lateral plane to frighten its target with sudden aerobatic acceleration achieved by continuous wing flapping. (Ref. 89445). A total of 36 breeding pairs were found with their laying months as follows: Nov 1990 (1), Dec (2), Jan 1991(5), Feb (14), Mar (5), Apr (1), May (3), Jun (1), Dec (1), Feb 1992 (3).
