Subject: [Tweeters] More details on shearwater sightings
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!!
