as for the tail of the bird its shape is all wrong. Birds have horizontal tails not vertical.
To me this is either a ufo, or a new type of stealth uav no wonder why it would be in oregon though.

I think you have it nailed...waterfoul (a quickly approaching endangered list- thanks BP - around here) typically show a highly reflective anterior edge of the wing in flight - has to do with their water-proof feathers. I have seen many of what we call here pull-doo (I have no clue how to spell it) that are like small black ducks- in flight that demonstrate this trait. Creates an illusion due to the awkward position of this bird all the more misleading.
Makes the angle of the light source in this pic in the right place,
too small to be a plane, IMO.
Photog wouldn't have noticed a bird in the frame when snapped it - Doesn't mean it wasn't there or appeared only on film.
I think you nailed this one. Good job!
