large black bird the size of a chicken

We live in northeast GA and have seen an unusual very large black bird around here recently. It is solo, the size of a full grown chicken, totally black, and seems to prefer to walk rather than fly. Although, I assume it can fly. I am 100% positive it is not a vulture, although it is similar in size and color, it has a different build and manner. Any ideas about what kind of bird we are seeing?
