Look closely at the talons and you'll see a piece of chicken.
This is a juvenile the adults are having difficulty driving away.

Thx Robert, they started a project years ago to clean the waters and to reconstruct the shores down the river and now they are returning in great numbers.

I envy you that photo! Nice one! I'm no expert on these, but, for what it's worth, I think your bird is a Parasitic Jaeger. It doesn't look deep chested enough for a Pomerine and darker birds like this one typically show two white underwing flashes, a big one and a smaller one.

Thanks! Yeah, I feel pretty lucky to have been that close to one. I've never even seen a jaeger before this.

Thanks for your input on the ID. The jaegers are really tough to ID!

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
