what do you think it was?
I tried to get a picture this morning, but when I went to go get my camera, it flew away. I have NO idea what it was. I'm used to seeing small birds and the occasional hawk/crows at my bird feeder, but this one was unusual. It was up in a tree/ was grayish/dark in color/it's head moved almost like a chicken, quail, pigeon. It was pretty early in the morning (about 6:20) It was fairly large. I'd say the size of a chicken/hawk/owl. I've never seen one that looked like this before. If I could best describe it.....large, pigeon/chicken like head movements, grayish/dark in color.
I live in Plymouth Massachusetts and we are about a mile or two from the beach as well. Any info would be great. I'm just hoping it comes back, and this time I can get a picture.
