I live south of Greenville. Two Months ago, I saw the most majestic bird next to the Bald Eagle. Could someone help me identify it? I first saw him take a swoop at my chickens. They ran for cover under bushes. He was very large, Like an owl, at least 18 inches. He was heavy breasted, with a hawklike head. Steel gray wings and cap, white breast, underbelly and legs. He perched in a tree nearby. I was able to stand under the same tree and talk to him for about 5 minutes before he took flight. I hoped that whatever had been taking my chickens, it was him and not some stupid neighborhood dog that just kills for sport. The closest thing I could find in my bird feild guide was a Perigrine Falcoln, but he doesn't have a white belly, or range in this area.
