I was looking over the latest WOS News, #112. The photo of the Sooty and Short-tailed Shearwaters (p.7) allowed me to reflect on my sighting on May 22, 2007; boat trip to the San Juans. It is very clear to me (my memory) that what I saw was really just as I concluded: Sooty Shearwater. The forehead and bill-size differences are quite distinctive, as long as one can get a good enough look.
