General

Information is from dictionaries and other sources. Pinyin reflects Mandarin pronunciation; for some dialect names, it is no more than a polite fiction. Korean glosses are tentative. Comments and corrections welcome. Hover over Green Lettering Green lettering at this site hides a tool tip with glosses, further explanations, etc. Hover cursor to reveal. to see additional information.

The skuas and jaegers are called 贼鸥 zéi-ōu 'robber gulls' due to their habit of harrassing smaller sea birds to give up their catch. They are also known as 猎鸥 liè-ōu 'hunting gulls'.

Note: Stercorarius maccormicki is found only in the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.
