Pictures of the swimming Antarctic Skua (Catharacta antarctica) far of the coast and flying over the open sea.Subantarctic Skuas (Catharacta Antarctica) are Antarctic birds. They feed on fish, cancers, octopus, birdsâ€™ eggs, weak young birds and carrion. They are found at the coast of the southern tip of Africa all year round. Often they follow fish trawlers, as they are especially interested in their waste. Subantarctic Skuas breed in the Antarctic and on the islands off the coast. Alternative names: Antarctic Skua, Subantarctic Skua, Brown Skua.
