Seen after the count by Jason B. and myself. Adult light-morph bird, fairly close to shore. Only a single white-wing flash visible on the underside of the wings below. Views through the scope confirmed that the tail was pointed (bird was not a POJA). Here's a distant picture showing the white on the underside of the wings: Parasitic Jaeger

jaeger sp.

two were seen during the 8-hr count; both distant and not IDable to species. We then had two more after the count and both of those birds were adult, Parasitic-types. However, our photos might not be enough to back it up.
