I'm hoping that someone with more pelagic experience than I will offer a suggestion on this bird -- a jaeger or a shearwater?

Also see http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/799432 for possible pics of the same bird in flight

Description

aka. Long-tailed Jaeger. This is the smallest and most slender of the skuas. The virtual absence of small rodents is the likely reason for the long-tailed skua’s rarity in Svalbard. Blomstrandhalvøya, Svalbard, Norway.
