***POST WAS EDITED BY ME "GUYFRIDAY", IN ORDER TO POINT OUT THE PART I WANT TO TALK ABOUT***
the bird to me isn't the mystery. the electrical failure momentarily in the car is. what could have caused that? a biological bird couldn't have.

my favorite part of this story is " Her Husband, a law officer, got out of the vehicle and pulled his service weapon and fired it in an attempt to scare off whatever this thing was. " did he shoot it into the ground? if he fired it into the air the bullet had to fall somewhere

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,
a reply to: ZeroOne
Hello ZeroOne, thanks for posting this story. Believe it or not I have been Kaibito a few times in my past.
I used to live In Page, AZ. for 3+ years.
I never heard of thunderbirds on the Navajo Rez... skin runners, yes.... UFO's... yes.... strange curses on friends and their families, yes...(A local argument over who owned a watering hole for their sheep and goats...caused bad juju to go on. They found someone shot through the roof the mouth in their hogan... but no evidence at all anywhere. No footprints etc. Someone claims they shot a skinrunner the night before dancing on top of HIS hogan, but he was in the form of a coyote. NOT kidding mate...freaky story there.) (The distance from the shot skinrunner to the hogan of dead man was over a mile! )
I even had an event that my Navajo friends said was I encountered by a medicine man who was "travelling"...
I had an adopted aunt, who was a Navajo orphan, that my grandparents adopted. I saw her "healed" of debilitating arthritis by a medicine man...
I must agree with you.. I never saw a Blue Heron that far south. I had seen them in Utah, on shoreline of Lake Powell; even around Sweetwater, UT. But where you saw it was way south for them.
Weird things happen on the Rez... people think you are lying or making it up.... Anyone who has lived in that region for any decent length of time know weird stuff goes on..and rarely get explained.
I know someone who "swears on a stack of Bibles" he had a skin runner running alongside his GTO...at 70MPH!!! It looked at him, laughed, and took off and veered off into the desert. My friend was very affected by it..
I also had an aunt who was a schoolteacher for 6 years on the Navajo reservation. She saw some very strange things...UFO lights stuff. That was in Pinon, AZ.
Lord knows there are enough remote canyons and high places for such a bird to hide out in around that country. Your post triggered some fond memories of that area and part of my life.
