Didn't really look like a craft. Maybe something biomorphic?

I was driving toward downtown on Fredericksburg Road this morning and looked up and saw this black thing.

It was cloudy (fairly low clouds & fairly solid but puffier than stratus), so no sun reflection. There was no wind that I could tell (no treetops moving. clouds weren't moving)

This object was solid black, very dark black and had sharp edges but kind of "lumpy". (not as if square or rectangular. Irregular shape) It wasn't large at all (not like a craft) but larger than a hawk (fairly common in NW San Antonio)- maybe 2 or 3 times that size. It was pretty low.

Since this is practically IN the "medical center", we have alot of helicopters. It was slightly lower than their usual altitude. It wasn't moving fast, KIND of drifting but seemed more to just be moving steadily. It wasn't even similar to the way a bird would "soar".

It was only a couple of minutes (if that long) before it passed beyond the top of my windshield & I couldn't see it. I must have slowed down because the car behind me went around me kind of as if they were irritated. When I first noticed it, it might have been about where Fred Rd crosses over 410. Maybe a little further south, but not much.

It definitely wasn't a bird, a helicopter or a garbage bag. It gave the impression of being solid and had no parts (?) moving. There was no sound above the traffic (which wasn't all that noisy). I was located after Magic or Chambers Streets (side streets to my left- a short distance apart.) but well before Loop 410.
