Very interesting. I'm working on a sci-fi novel and now my brain is itching. lol
It reminds me of the movie 'Pans Labyrinth' when Ofelia, at around minute 4:50, starts drawing a shape with chalk to make a door to escape a cyclops, a door (or window) that's not there to begin with.
Sorry, but why apply "effects" to the photo? You've essentially just distorted the original image by applying them, so these edits shouldn't really be used to identify the object (bird).
I'm not trying to be rude, btw. Not at all. I believe you have the best intentions, just not the right software.

All talk of non localised electromagnetic anomalies aside, if we list in the order from most probable explanation to least probable, perhaps this would be a useful exercise.
Bird, plastic bag, kite, random floating detritus, drone, alien bird, alien being, alien spacecraft, interdimensional wormhole with interdimensional being emerging.
Which end of this list is the most probable explanation, and which end the least?

Dead fly/bug/insect on the windshield. Explains why OP and passenger's couldn't see it. Camera focused on the black object against the backdrop of a blue sky, that to the camera is just a vast sea of nothingness. It needs to find something to focus on thus the dead bug on the windshield.
Same phenomenon occurs regarding 'orbs' we can't see them, so when a camera captures them it's supernatural. (it's not, it's airborne particles reflecting light 99% of the time - see below though for additional story)
Just an off topic post on orbs. We went on a ghost tour and were taking photos and having experiences throughout the night. We got to a stairwell in a haunted hotel and the tour guide is indicating an area with his hand where people say they see the ghost of a lady and where people often misstep and fall down the stairs. We took a picture and sure as spit there is a large orb basically in his hand and it appears to be casting its own light. More than the basic 'orbs' photos this thing actually appeared to have physical mass and be casting light. I have the picture somewhere i need to dig for it, I'll actually probably post a thread about it, be on the look out for it
