    Anyone know a good website to identify bird calls. I have heard a screaming screech, twice now and think it is some kind of hawk, possibly eagle. I live in NW Ga. near the mountains.
    I also heard crows throwing a fit roughly the same time, but couldn't get a visual.

    Try Enature.com. They have lots of bird recordings. If you are hearing lots of crows with your unknown screamer then you can probably safely assume it's some sort of raptor, and probably a threat to your chickens.

    Whatbird.com is also a good one.
