duck sp.

jaeger sp.

Dark, sleder winged, rapidly moving jaeger. Consistently deep in wave troughs
(6ft), swiftly shearwatering without a single wingbeat. Much smaller than HERG nearby. Winspan that of a RBGU. White in outer 2-3 primaries showed nicely against dark wings. Likely a dark or intermediate morph LTJA although view was too brief to get other diagnostic traits. Bird was approximately 50 meters off shore while I was about the same distance inshore but elevated perhaps 20ft above the lake level on the lower landing of the steps to the beach.
