I'm glad you raised this, Bruce, because I did a semi-controlled
experiment this weekend (talk about coincidence).

I was driving on a north to south highway, and it turned out that
there were some geese flying in approx. the same direction. They
were at some distance, and as I drove along I quickly caught up
with them and passed them (@65 mph).

Also, they were at about 20 degrees elevation; they were clearly
geese at all distances, even when at the limits of resolution.
And, despite the fact that the sun was to my right and the geese
were to my left, they never once emitted a specular reflection or
looked like disk-shaped object.
