I would guess it to be a black bear, despite the assertion that they've none in that area of the state. Blame it on Global Warming, but it is fast becoming inarguable that animals are venturing beyond their usual haunts. And those that once roamed everywhere are begining to reclaim the enclaves from which they were so well hunted.
That said, I must confess that the actual image looks more like a male silverback resting on his forearms.
Update: A poster over at Blogsquatcher pointed out that it looks like a black bird (possibly a crow) taking off, its wings thrust downward. Once I saw what they meant and noticed the black birds on the ground near the feeder, it made perfect sense.
