Forensic photography with the big green Lost bird

So here it is: the absolute best screenshot I could get of last nights big green bird that shrieked like some sort of pterodactyl. I couldn't get anything good from my DVR. I had to purchase the iTMS copy of the show and open the file in Quicktime, so that I could step frame by frame through the section. Clearly, it was a moment of computer-generated green birdiness last night, but what type of bird? The green made me think of the eagle on American currency, but that seems a stretch, even for this bizarre show. I played with the image some in Photoshop. I'm no expert, by any means, but check after the jump for some more pictures...
In this one I basically removed as much color as possible from the surrounding scenery.
Here, I cropped the image, sharpened the bird, and played with the curves a bit. Looks like some kind of hawk to me. What do you think?
