Vine Sphinx Moth in Oregon ?

Dallas, OR

Hi,
We live in Polk County, Oregon and have noticed this Vine Sphinx Moth(at least that's what I think it is...) on the screen to our deck for the last couple of days.

I don't think I've ever seen one of these in these parts. Anybody else in Northwest Oregon have these ? Are they usually in Northwest Oregon ?
Thanks for any replies !

I think it is more likely to be a Hyles lineata, the White-lined sphinx, reported range includes your area. Check it out and see what you think?

It would be fun if you ever got to see the caterpillar stage, too!

I would like to but now it's gone !
As of yesterday afternoon.
I'll keep looking though...
