    Looks like a whippoorwill (aka southern nightingale). But I haven't seen one for many years....

    Looks like a common nighthawk, but nightjars can be the very devil to identify. Whippoorwills shouldn't be up on Oregon, if you were near to home. Rare pose I suspect - if they are like other nightjars they usually sit on the ground.
