Very large bird the size of an eagle

There are a couple of really large birds flying over Lake Selmac in So. Oregon. Anyone else that knows what they are?? They have a wing span of well over 3 feet and a body the size of an eagle. The underbelly is brown and white spots and the wings are mostly brown. It looked easily like it could have weighed 8 to 10 lbs if not more. I think the head may have been partially white and brown.

Very large brown bird with brown white spotted under wings . NEW

Hi,
This very large brown, strange bird w/ a white head has been frequently visiting our yard and our neighbor has seen it too. Maybe about 20lbs. It flew away and had a huge wingspan; tan under its wings and spotted. Would it be after slug worms or what else might it be looking for? Thank you for any info you might have. We also had some trees cut down and it was visiting near the wood chips.
I could email you a picture too.
