need help with ID

I saw a flock of around 20 medium sized birds (smaller than a gull, but possibly a little larger than a robin),they were 1 1/2 miles from the confluence of the Columbia and Sandy River in the Pacific NW. They looked to be a gleaming white underneath, breast, belly and all. They had a rapid wing beat but it was effortless and they were flying in an undulating manor while swooping high and low, and around in loops moving very quickly and agile. I'm guessing they must be an insect eater but they were gleaming white underneath.
