    This guy has been visiting the neighborhood daily and trying to get squirrels at the neighbor's feeder. Does anybody know what he might be? He doesn't match any in our bird books?

    Some kind of an owl....looked in my bird book. It looks like it might be an eastern screech owl...maybe an immature one. I'm no expert,though.

    Here is another pic with his head turned. No ears like an owl and wrong beak.

    Looks like it could be an Broad winged Hawk.

    Here are links to a website with pics. At first I thought it might be a Coopers hawk as they are pretty well known for hunting at bird feeders, but I don't think they are in Eastern US. And the Coopers hawk site gave a link to this broad winged hawk. Looks an awful lot like the picture here.
