Ashy Storm-Petrel

Seen offshore near and slightly in the mouth of San Lorenzo Creek. Dark rump. Fluttery looking flight. Wingbeats looked shallow. Plumage looked all brownish-black except for somewhat paler upperwing coverts. Underwing not seen. Bird only seen in flight.

This is the 31st time I have seen them in 36 years and half of them were in 1992 and 1994. Most are seen from Johnson's Landing as I have never seen one fly over or under the San Mateo Bridge.
