100% a Jaeger. I haven't seen very many, and none of my guides show the various plumages between juvenile and adult. The pointed central tail feathers say Parasitic, as does the size and the fact that it was inshore, so I'd have to say I agree with Parasitic. But recognize I'm pretty far from an expert!

Wow, I can't weigh in on what it is for sure, but those are some fantastic shots!

Thanks folks! It flew right over my head so I was lucky with the shots.
