Did you mean long tail, rather than wings? Is the throat and chin pale
(whitish)? Phoebes wag their tails frequently down and up. The most similar
and expected species to eliminate would be Black Phoebe that is regular in
Tillamook now. If you can get a picture even with phone or a video that
would be helpful. Eastern Phoebe would be a rare sighting indeed, though
Oregon seems to be getting one or two records annually this decade. It is a
review species on the Oregon Birds Records Committee state list. Thanks for
the report.
