I just got a new camera and starting photographing birds in my backyard. This guy is larger than a pigeon but smaller than a crow- the photo is at the highest zoom possible so the size is a little confusing. I am in southwestern Ohio and used a bird book, but could not find out what he/she is! Quite a beauty though! Any ideas?
