Okay, I seen it again (11/8/05). This time it was right before I went into my bus. Now that I got a better look at it, I think it might have been some kind of falcon or eagle. The only thing that puzzles me is that I never seen a bird of prey fly like that. It flew around a bit and spiraled down until it landed somewhere near a creek. I really need to study the flight patterns of birds..........

Grab a camera and see if you could capture it on film.

The thunderbird was a native american god that soared the skys and when it flapped its wings thunder would cover the land and when he looked down at earth lightning would strike in the same spot, unless the natives were right about the many gods then i dont think the thunderbird exists today, unless they were fearful and mistook the bird as a god then its just mythology, but then again who says that christianity has found the "real" god and that the natives where wrong,In my opinion you just saw a large hawk but i didnt see what your family and yourself saw so i just stick with the facts right now and say that i dont know.

This is typical of Hawks and Falcons who KNOW where their prey is...and are simply waiting for it to reappear, perhaps from under a rock or log too big for the bird to remove. I work next to a closed down airbase which has a HUGE rodent population and of course, hawks.

I would like to remain a-non-o-muss in this matter . In 1982 I was fishing in Lake County Illinois ,35 miles north of Chicago ,7 miles east of lake Michigan.The area i was fishing is heavily wooded ,Des Plains river to the east of me and lake Minear to the west . I wasn't having much luck fishing at the lake. I started walking towards the river .I seen an old picnic table half covered in moss , i sat to have a smoke. The shade was perfect ,the breeze was blowing hot humid air into the canopy of the woods,i was perfectly content ,but something felt strange .You ever get the feeling someone is watching you. You look around and discover someone actually is .I looked around...... behind me ..in front of me ..left ...right...nothing ..i grinned ......My grin didnt last long ,i still felt that creepy feeling someone was watching me.

I don't know why but i turned my head,, over my right shoulder and looked up .mother ****** Thats what i said ***...I was frozen ...about 30 feet from me sitting on a branch of a small cottonwood tree was a f****** black bird 6 feet tall ,about to bust the branch he is perched on .
Just watching me ..I could see in that birds eyes it was an intelligent s.o.b. the way it observed me .I was about to have a f****** heartattack ..
For some reason i told myself """its an illusion ""Not real"""no bird is that big """

I was scared ,this bird looked intimidating ,,it could have eaten me ! i am sure .
Wooosh A mighty flap of his wings 2 times and he was 30 feet straight up over the canopy .The wingspan was at least 20 feet possibly 25 feet .I sat still on the picnic table still in shock ..a dream like state ..
I looked up to see the giant make a pass over me ,just skimming over the tops of the trees .and a second pass and he was gone ..

He looked like a giant crow ..mixed with a falcon or eagle . the beak was absolutely straight .Black as night 100%from head to talons.

I told some friends ,nobody believed me .I know what i saw .I wont never forget it ,but i am not obsessed about it anymore .I post because i seen a documentary about this on the history channel. I just want anyone who documents this sort of sighting to know the year and location for their data .
They call it a blackhawk and believe>> thats a perfect name for it .
i didnt know there was so much about this on the net i am off surfing .

When my sister and I were very young, playing in the back yard at our grandmother's house, a huge shadow passed over us. I looked up thinking it was a storm cloud, and saw a large solid black bird. It turned its head down to look at us, then looked ahead. It never flapped its wings. There were mature pecan trees at the edge of the yard, it barely skimmed over the top of them. My grandmother saw the bird from the kitchen window, and ran out to get us, she thought it was going to attack. I went with her into the living room to look through the bird book, nothing in there looked like it. It was not a condor, not an eagle, not a hawk. It mostly looked like a teratorn which I never saw a picture of until the advent of the internet. My sister and I asked our grandmother on her death bed about remembering the bird, she became very lucid, and said 'yes, we saw it, and don't ever let anyone tell you that you didn't'. It has been almost 40 years since we saw the bird, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

I've read some of the threads on thunderbirds and no one has witnessed a thunderbird themselves. I got into this whole thunderbird thing when I had a discussion with my uncle on strange creatures. Apparently he, his cousin, my aunt, grandma, dad, and possibly grandpa have all seen this massive winged-beast at some point in their lives. My uncle along with his cousin and wife have seen something huge fly low over his house about 2 years ago. I think it was around sunset. My uncle says that it looked much like a pterodactyl and that it flew like one also. It flapped it's wings while slightly bobbing up and down, so it coulnd't of been an eagle; not to mention that most birds are asleep by 6:00. For those of you who have seen the Jurastic Park movies, you know what they look like. It was even the same dark brown color. Then, when my dad and uncle were driving to work one time (they both work at the same shop) they noticed a large winged creature standing on a tree in the forest (it was about 7:15am). Laslty, my grandma says she seen it also at night when she came to town. My grandpa also seen it, but he says that he knows what it is. He doesn't speak English, and I couln't translate the name of the bird he gave. He discribed it and from what he was saying, I think he was reffering to a night heron which do live in the area. Maybe it was night herons that they were all seeing, but could that be easily mistaken for a 6-foot tall animal with a wingspan of about 25 feet? I'll give more detail on these interesting stories as soon as I can. The first sighting ocurred not long before that UFO sighting in Tinley Park, it was a full moon, and strangely; my uncle had a wolf snooping behing his fence. I don't think wolves live in my area. Anyway, thats besides the point. There are no pictures (unfortunately) so don't ask.
So......have anyone of you seen this so-called thunderbird?


I have 20 years worth of accumulated sightings by people - which number nearly one hundred. Given that I am in Australia, and most of the sightings are in north America, that's pretty good going. I am trying to get a publisher to pick up on it and give it a run on the shelves.

Interestingly, 99% of those reporting the sightings DO NOT WANT recognition, money or attention - they are just concerned/upset/amazed/excited that such things even exist in their opinion.

I found one site a few years ago where people report weird things - and there are a lot of 'thunderbird' sightings in there: ie

me and my friend saw something at around dusk that we couldnt explain a few months ago. but i just saw a show about thunderbirds on the history channel and i decided that it had to be a thunderbird. it flew over our heads and made a big circle like alot of birds of prey do. but it was bigger than any bird i could imagine. the only explanation - a thunderbird. i also live in illinois and ive heard that illinois was where many sightings were.

I did see something last year. I was driving home from work in the Naperville/Warrenville area, and I saw a shape high in the sky (west & way up). It just looked oval at first, like it was spinning. A small (Cesna?) airplane was at a similar height, and I realized the thing was right about the same size. I was driving west, and it spun in tight close circles as it descended rapidly. I was on a curvy section of road that runs just south of and parallel to the expressway (88?). When the thing (which at times looked the shape of a kids swimming pool twirling around up there -- like a wobbly frisbee) had me amazed -- I didn't know what the heck it was. THEN, it was in view - an enormous bird - maybe 20 - 40 feet from my car -- it stopped circling - swooped down - and opened its wings and started flapping right up in front of me - then turned over a swampy area to the left (south) of my car - and continued southeast until it was behind and out of sight. IT WAS HUGE!!! I swear the trunk of the body looked like the size of me!!!!! (the description of sizes here is NOT an exaggeration -- it really was that big) -- This is gonna sound crazy or made up -- but this really happened -- it was last summer - maybe June? The wingspan Each Wing looked to be about the length of a bus. it was Black in color - and moved fast - but with just a few big swooping flaps of its wings - as the road curved, I tried to keep an eye on where it went, but I was looking back and the road was too curvy. The weird thing was that nobody in their cars anywhere was looking up at all... nobody else seemed to notice. I almost ran off the road (there's a curb there - nowhere to pull off). I don't have a cell phone, and I didn't have a camera in the car. I did make a sketch that day, and I'm sure I can find it. It was THE weirdest, most shocking thing I have ever seen in my life. If I find the sketch, I can take a picture. I'm sure it has the date on it. Is there somewhere I can upload it to here?

I don't know if anyone will read this because this thread might be old.

But i just seen a thunderbird no less than a hour ago.


I did some research on it when i got home, I read descriptions on it, and it looked like that.

It was black with a white ring around the neck.

I have seen 2 sightings in the last month here in Chillicothe IL of a very large bird with a wing span of 6 ft or more. I thought I was crazy but reading stories on the internet about this convinced me they are the same birds. It was dark so I didn’t get a good look at it but I could feel the air from the large wings and could hear them flap. One of the sightings I seen it fly from the ground to the telephone wires and when it landed it looked like it was around 4 ft high.
