Observation details

Excellent looks at adult still surprisingly in breeding plumage. Dark cap with small white patch on forehead; shortish dark red bill; upperparts and wings fairly dark gray with obvious blackish wedge on outer primaries; underwings and body distinctly faint grayish; fine but distinct dark outer webs on tail. I may have gotten some in-focus photos.
