Hmm. I live in Tucson and have seen a few (rather a s*&tload of) weird sights. Included was a large bird that looked pretty pterodactyl-like but was
too far away to be sure of anything other than it was big, glided a lot and had pointy wings that didn't have the usual raptor flight feathers at the
In what general area did this happen? Even if it was a stork or wayward pelican, it's pretty neat since they are rare in these parts. If it was in
fact a supposedly extinct dinosaur I hope they aren't thinking of populating greater metro Tucson as folks 'round here tend to pack heat and some
don't take kindly to extinct flying monsters.
There has been a steady disappearance of family pets through the years, but I tend to think the probable culprits are coyotes and mountain lions
-which cruise through the downtown area as I can attest to. Swooping pterosaurs are far cooler, though.
So I hope you were spot on with your observation and they're coming back along with the Jaguars.
Edit* Oh yeah, did it have feathers on the wings? Feathering and general colors? Down, etc.?
