Jaegers can be easily be identified from each other in breeding plumage by examining the tails feathers of the seabirds. Although, the species can vary in plumage colours, ranging from light morph, intermediate morph and dark morph, the shape or profile of the tail feathers are the same for each species, but different from the other two types of jaegers. This is not as easy when the seabirds are seen in non-breeding plumage, or the jaeger is a juvenile. In these cases the tail feathers might be much shorter, and less prominent, or not visible at all.
