my first time ever spotting for myself a jaeger (though knew to look for them bc had read Phil P’s report of his 7:15am amazing ocean watch here this morning before today’s all-day coastal fog swept in) (he reported 3 Parasitic jaeger, (also a booby sp. and a Short tailed SH among many Sooty shearwaters, (& better ID of many various gulls, and more species of ducks, and otherwise everything I refound but in higher numbers))) ; poss a handful of jaegers, but only 2 dark ones for sure, allover dark, very dark, I can’t make out in this dim foggy sunset/post-sunset any light patches anywhere except maybe sometimes I wonder if whitish edges of “hip”/upper tail? maybe not : (Sibley shows only Parasitic of the jaegers can poss appear all entirely dark without any striking white patches) : can’t for sure make out any central elongation of tail, only a couple of times thought possibly something short at center , but most of time couldn’t really make out shape of tail , so prob wasn’t any long streamer : smaller than all other gulls, and thin bill cf. to gulls : and when splash down towards groups of pelicans and gulls sitting on water they all are disturbed and many flush away, and jaeger does this many times ; (note, looking in book through gulls, the only smaller-size gull that could poss be all dark and this dark would be a juv Heerman’s , which is size of the largest jaeger, larger than parasitic);

[cont. note from Parasitic Jaeger] : also saw a couple smaller (beside other ocean birds for size comparison, too small for larger) gulls sitting on distant waves thought likely for jaegers but those had some white upper side in wing before the black primaries, and sibley doesn’t show that option for any jaegers : this does match fit for Heermanns

only 1 loon possible for Red-throated, plumage didn’t match any other loons seen: nice clean line face down neck between upper side dark and white below , no necklace, but I didn’t refind to get better look
