Long-tailed jaegers (Stercorarius longicaudus) have a breeding range which covers the North pole. This includes parts of North America, Greenland, Russia, and Canada. They can live as far south as 61° N latitude during the breeding season but are completely migratory birds. In the winter they migrate south off the coasts of South America and South Africa usually near continental shelf breaks, upwelling regions, and coastal waters in general.
