This is a starling, not one of the nobility like eagle and hawk, but a common bird. I see them around here all the time.

Lilian is the author of Web of Angels, a novel about a mom with DID (multiple personalities). She's also the author of the historical novels, The River Midnight and The Singing Fire, about secrets, friendship and motherhood in 19th century Poland and London.
