A massive ephemeral eagle bears down on the target, it's diamond talons shimmering before clawing deep into the scalp of your foe. The caster must succeed on an attack roll, with an attack bonus equal to their caster level plus their relevant ability score bonus. On a hit, the talons deal 2d4 damage, +1/level, maximum 2d4+10 at 10th level.

What, just so they will have something to go after Incorporeal creatures with at low levels?

Almost double the damage of Magic Missile at first level (6 vs 3.5)... not sure if that is balanced by the fact it requires an attack roll... given the fluff, that could be balanced by making it a full-round or 1 round casting time...

Need for an attack roll is big, IMO. Big enough to make this spell pretty useless at high levels due to the non-scaling. But then again, CoDzilla knows every spell, ever, without any effort...

Druids already have enough attack spells.
