General area of the sighting.

Possible Thunderbird Report and Witness Interview

The following is a combination of a submitted report, an email exchange, and a witness phone interview. The witness had two separate sightings of a possible Thunderbird. The Thunderbird is described as a large bird-like creature that is normally tied to Native American tradition. Fossil records do show that giant birds with a wing span between 12 and 18 feet did exist. The Thunderbird is largely thought of as a myth nowadays, but reports of sightings keep being documented from time to time.

Here is the report and interview with Robert.

  1. But I don't understand if you saw it twice in exact same spot and nobody bothered to ask him if he took a picture of it or try to set up a trail camera I mean if you seen it in the same spot trying to explain it to somebody be a lot better to have a picture
