Really cool post! S&F
I have a lady friend who says she was picked up by one of these Thunderbirds when she was a little girl. Her sister ran and grabbed her as the bird
was flying off and fortunately for her the bird only got her hair and as it was still going up with the weight of both girls her hair pulled out and
Farmers gathered to hunt it down and found its nest in, "several" trees at the top of a hill and shot it. The then took the bird to Wilmington
college in Ohio.
The bird ended up, "disappearing" from the college and she told me the FBI came and told them that the incident never occurred and not to talk about
it or they would come and take them somewhere.
The college administrator had long passed but I knew the son of the college administrator at the time of the incident.. Interested in her story, I
went to his house and talked with the son and his mother about the bird and they lit up about the subject and told me that the event did in fact
I too have seen one of these birds from a great distance. I was riding around on a bicycle and I saw what I thought to be a huge kite flying from a
schoolyard about a mile away. Then It flapped its wings and I knew it was not a kite!
I then thought it was an optical illusion because it appeared to be at the height of one small cloud in the sky. but then it flew right back into the
little cloud and though I followed the cloud the bird never came back out of it.
The clouds were allmost non-existent; just 2 or three small clouds that were very high that day.
What really strikes me is the intelligence of the creature understanding to use the clouds as a cloak! The cloud was very small; about 5 football
fields square like. It was really using it to conceal itself from the evil human race!
That makes me believe there is a lot more of them doing the same. It looked like this one was hoping to find another bigger cloud but there were none
so it went back into the small one it came out of. The cloud was not much bigger than the bird as in 20 of them might be able to stay in it.
In description it was not a vulture or a pterodactyl. It was more of what appeared to be in color of a dove or some hawks and it was majestic to say
the least. I believe it was the size of a cessna or better..
Edit to add: About the most a bird can pick up and fly with is about 1/10th to 1/8th of its weight; so that would mean that the bird had to weigh at
least 640 pounds to pick up two 40 pound girls!!
