Hi all,

I thought I should add that the shearwaters I posted about last night were both all dark and dark with light underwings. It was the latter I was unsure about whether they were Sooty vs Short tailed.

I did run across this excellent ABA piece by Greg Gillson. Hope to see more reports today!! https://www.aba.org/birding_archive_files/v40n2p34.pdf
