Observation details

Overall dark storm-petrel with pale upper-wing bar that did not include the primary coverts. Overall plumage was blackish-brown, what appears to be fresher feathers were more black (no other tones). Tail shape forked with outer rectrices longer than inners. Long wings & tail with wingtips extending beyond tail when sitting on water. LESP would show shorter wedged shaped tail. ASSP should show grayish tones to plumage whereas this was brown-toned. Other dark storm-petrel species?
