Possible Thunderbird Report and Witness Interview

General area of the sighting.
This following is a combination of a submitted report, 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 does show that giant birds with wing spans 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.
