Observation details

Seen just at dusk as tropical storm Barry bands began rolling in from the south, medium-sized, dark pelagic bird with very thin, sharp wings; an incredible flyer, despite the 40+ mph gusts; black tail with white line on rump, black capped, wings lined with black and white in the center; both of us managed to get enough photos to confirm the ID with assistance from our birding compadres with more experience with pelagics.
