Parasitic/Long-tailed Jaeger

Three sightings probably of two different individuals, but couldn't be certain. Juvenile(s). Slender-winged and gull-like with white wing flashes. Too distant for certain ID, but wings not broad enough for Pomarine. Based on the bad views I was able to get of the underwings and undertail coverts, all sightings were probably of Parasitic--both areas appeared to be the same color as the body, not with any amount of contrasting white barring. Impossible to confidently make out shape of central tail feathers, though they did not appear significantly longer than the rest of the tail.
