Coastal Flyover Bird

Recommended Posts

I was at Ft Stevens in NW Oregon today, walking between Parking Area B to the jetty (Parking Area C), that is closed while they are working on it for the next few years. Pacific beach line. Not a lot of birds out there. A hand full of gulls and peeps, a Whimbrel did a low flight by. Not a lot of people, but several dogs off leash were keeping the shore line hopping with doggy activity. I caught a shadow as it flew over the sun and as it flew right out of the light I got one very far off shot, it was quite high

I don't think it looks like a gull, but I could be wrong, but it just didn't strike me as anything I am remotely familiar with. Of course, I just moved here a couple of months ago, so that includes a lot of new to me birds. This is as close as I can crop it without losing any realistic definition, but if anyone wants the original posted, I can.

If it's a Canada Goose I'm going to give up birding. Thank you!
