Observation details

Very close to shore, sitting on the water near the rocks of the point. Incredible point-blank looks as it flew briefly and then sat back down on the water very close to the rocks. Photos taken. All-dark shearwater with short, dark bill, dark feet, silvery sheen to trailing edge of the upperwings. Not unexpected at this location, but unusually close to shore.
