Observation details

WPO, east of the northern Marianas (islands visible), photos. All dark shearwater, lacking the white flashes in the underwings of Sooty or Short-tailed. Flight was also noticeably different from Sooty/Short-tailed Shearwater and was what initially alerted us that it was something different. Flight was more relaxed than sooty/short-tailed.
