More Thunderbird sightings reported

New Thunderbird sightings


Under my blog on thunderbirds there have been a few comments from people telling of their own sighting s so I thought I would post the comments for everyone to see.

I saw a bird like this just lastnight August 11th 2009 at approximately 11:30 p.m. while watching the sky for meteors. It was easily as huge as a human..I am still in shock, my children even saw it! I live in Northwest Missouri and I know everyone will think I am a nut case, but this is 100% true!

You must report it Rachel whilst it is fresh in your mind. Thank you for sharing it with us.
It appears you weren't the only one to see a large bird that night:
I received this email from a man who lives west of San Antonio, Texas near Medina Lake. He states he witnessed a large flying creature last evening (August 11, 2009). He has requested that his full name be withheld at the present time. (Note: edited for typos only)

Dear Sir. I witnessed a large flying creature this evening that I cannot identify. I found your site during a search. I'm apprehensive of mentioning it to any friends or family until I can get a grip on what this was.

I live west of San Antonio, TX near Medina Lake. Today, I was on a random outing to the area near the Diversion Lake dam. At about 7:30 pm, I was on my way back up the trail when I suddenly heard a loud awful scream coming from below the dam downstream. It sounded like an owl but lasted longer and was much louder. I stopped walking and watched downstream to see if I could catch a look at what caused the sound.

I then noticed a large flock of birds flush out of the trees near the riverbank. Then suddenly this giant flying creature swooped down into the river valley and just as quickly flew back up into the rocks. I continued to watch but did not hear or see it again. I call it a creature because it looked nothing like a bird. I was about 50 yards from it and would say conservatively that it's wing span was 15 ft. or so! It was dark colored and had a very long beak and a strange long thin tail. This sounds crazy, but it actually resembled one of those flying dinosaurs though the head was not as large and it looked like it had feathers.

I got back home and looked on the internet for examples of bird species but found nothing close. I'm not originally from this area and have never heard of anything like this. That is why I'm contacting you. Do you have an idea what it was? I see you have a website, maybe someone who reads your site could help identify it.

Maybe the meteor shower brought out some strange creatures or maybe that it was just that people were out and about to see them. Certainly interesting!

We were in Pacifica MO, tonight around 11:30 and we noticed a massive flying creature, not once but three times. My son even noticed it on his own the third time. We were near a large cliff / mountain with some type of cave openings. We don't live in the area, I can say for sure we turned onto a road called viaduct road, went past a fire station and continued on for about 1 mile before we first noticed it. It was brownish / grey and the body portion was at least the size of a large adult human. This creature was tracking us - in a circle pattern. We were driving an escalade with the blue color headlights, this may have cause interest in us. The third time around us we viewed it in front of the vehicle, around driver side and around towards the rear of the vehicle, the factory tinted windows did help it vanish into the sky from out point of view. Please understand when we could see it the range must have been about 150 feet in the air, not more than 250 feet. The distance was never less than 100 yards, often much greater. We were going about 35- 45 MPH. I have never thought of anything like this in my life! It is 3:33 and my son and myself are wide awake in a hotel 17 miles away from the place we first noticed the creature. UPDATE - checked google maps, the first time we noticed this was just off the I-44 Loop near the roads of Lost Hill LN and Clear Creek Road. We have been searching this out for hours. If you have any info please email me at prevost@mchsi.com , thanks!

I saw one about 2 years ago. I live in New Jersey and i heard about this thing on monster quest. It was in June and it was a nice sunny evening. I went outside to water the flowers. When i went outside the birds were chirping as usual. About 15 minutes after i went outside i noticed that it became silent...it was erie. Suddenly i noticed a large black thing sitting next too my neighbors bush. All of a sudden it turned and looked at me. For about a few minutes it just stared at me with its dark eyes. It had a white ring around its neck and a long beak. it was jet black and next it flew off...the sound from its wings was so loud. my mother asked me what it was...i was petrified. It flower over my neighbors deck which is 15 feet wide. scariest thing i have ever seen in my life. I still have nightmares about it.

I saw a very large bird perched atop a fir tree. in the louisiana swamp land between Alexandria and New orleans. On August 18th 2002. I've been waiting for a site like this to tell my story. I remember telling my wife to look at how freakishly large that bird was. and how I had never seen anything like it. It had a long black beak and was very tall perched. It must have stood at least five feet tall. It was black in color.

I know of someone who has a VHS of a thunderbird taken at a New Jersey dragstrip several years ago. It emerged from a large thunderhead at about 40,000 feet,made abanking turn ,and returned to the cloud. Even though it was several miles away,you could tell it was of enormous size.As large as a jetliner,and that's no exaggeration.It flew with a graceful and powerful motion which seemed consistent with its size.I'm currently trying to obtain a copy of the video- Greg from Glastonbury,CT

Greg, I have a jersey devil site I'd like to use the video on. Leave an update if you get ahold of the VHS tape please.

When I was around the age of 9 or 10, I was in the backyard playing baseball with my childhood friend when he looked up and dropped the ball. He was speechless, and all he did was point up. I looked up to see a very large bird-like creature. It's wingspan was about 12-18 feet (rough estimate). I have been wondering for years what it was. My fiancee recently told me to look up "thunder bird". When I did, I was shocked to find out the dark colored bird I saw fit the description of what most people were saying they saw. I live in Hammond, Louisiana and this happened probably around the year 2002-2003. I am glad I don't seem crazy anymore. lol

I just happened into this webpage and now I've signed up, as this conversation is fascinating.
I too had a childhood experience with a giant bird. I was in grade 7so I was about 12 years old. The year was 1960! The entire school was forced to go outside during recess even though it was a dull overcast,misty day. Clouds of mist hung about 20 feet over head ,so you could not see much of anything over head. Us boys were huddled together at the bottom part of the field, while the girls were up closer to the school. Suddenly, The girls started pointing into the air and screaming. Us boys looked to see what was going on and only saw them pointing into the mist above them. And you could see something was coming towards us due to the way the screaming girls kept pointing...something in this mist was moving downfield towards us. So I positioned myself started looking up and waited. Soon this huge black bird came into view. Since it was only about 20 feet above me, and just below this mist,I had time to scan every inch of it and today the picture of it is still frozen in my mind.
The first thing that struck me was its huge long beak a least 2 feet long.Then it had a long bump on the back of its head, about as long as its beak. Next I noticed it had 3 little boney fingers on the front edge of each wing. It had huge wings that looked like a bat with no feathers,just black skin. You could see the bones of its arms under the skin. And it had feet just past its body. It did not have a tail.
Looking back, it had a good 18-20 feet wingspan. It reminded me of an airplane it was so big. anyway it silently glided past everyone and disappeared into the mist. Then we all ran into the school. Our teacher at the time was the schools science teacher, so when we all started talking about this giant bird he laughed and got out his book of North American bird species. He held up numerous pics of black birds but we said it wasn't any of those. I was the one who mentioned the long bump on the back of its head. so he opened another book and showed us a pic. Nope that's not it we all said, then another and another, till he found the right pic. We all chimed in yes, that's it! While the girls screamed at the pic. He looked st it and laughed...he said it was a pterodactyl and it hadn't been seen on this earth in a million years. We all started to argue, but he told us to stop or we'd all have to stay after school..in other words, a class detention. So, loving school the way we did...we all shut up. Anyway giant bird gossip kept going for a week or so and then it was gone. Soon the world series was the snew interest. Anyway,I never told anyone about this giant bird, not even my wife, until a few years ago, for fear of being labelled a nutcase. But one day I did a search for modern pterodactylks on my google program and I was both excited and relieved to see many others have seen a similar bird...or whatever it was. I never doubted my sanity since the entire senior school saw this thing, but since no one ever spoke about it again, neither did I. This is the third time now that I have related my story to others...and I've not been locked up yet!...lol! Anyway, its all TRUE! But I've never seen anything like that again. Thanks for letting me remember. Have a nice day. Ron
