Sighting Location
We recently got in a Thunderbird report. As you may know, if you follow our website, we have taken in numerous reports of these extremely large birds. While Thunderbirds are mainly considered a myth by many, reports of these large birds have been documented for a very long time. Many of these reports are very creditable.

For those who might be unfamiliar with Thunderbirds, here is a little information.

The Thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples' history and culture. It is considered a supernatural being of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in the art, songs, and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest Coast cultures, but is also found in various forms among some peoples of the American Southwest, East Coast of the United States, Great Lakes, and Great Plains.

Thunderbird is a term used in cryptozoology to describe large, bird-like creatures, generally identified with the Thunderbird of Native American tradition. While the fossil record does show that giant birds (teratorns) with wingspans between 4 and 5 m (13 and 16 ft) were likely contemporary with early man, the creature is generally regarded as a myth or legend.

With that said, here is the report.

Describe sighting in detail:

Me and my friends went to go ride 4 wheelers at my dads property (at the time haven't seen him for 8 years cause he's an ass) long story short, me and my friend Josh were checking out this old house that was probably built before there was electric or anything, anyways that was toward the edge of my dad's land which is also directly next to the Canadian river.

The house was down this little path that lead off to an oil well looking thing. We were on Yamaha yfz450 that had aftermarket exhaust. So Josh takes off first toward the oil thing and I'm not even seconds behind. And as I take off I heard, over the 4 wheelers, like a swoosh and something caught my attention.

I look to my right, which is a somewhat open field with a treelline running same direction, at the path but probably 300 feet wide anyways, there was a giant black bird that scared the living shit out of me.

I was afraid to keep going forward, seriously, because I thought it my pluck me off the 4 wheeler. Josh looks over and he floors it and I'm still back closer to that old house. It was flying just a little above the tops of the trees but wasn't over them, because it was more in the field.

It flying in the direction of the river. You might think I'm crazy but I know what I saw and my friend saw. We never talked about it much because we knew no one would believe us or would think we were exaggerating.

I figured since he passed away this last year, I'd like to pass on the info in hopes of someone else discovering it.
Seriously each wing was about the length of a Honda Civic and the body of it was every bit the size of me and I'm 6 foot 200 lbs.

It was the craziest, scariest thing I have ever witnessed. I never knew anything like that existed. my name is James *******, my email (withheld). I live in Oklahoma City.
I'll give you the exact longitude latitude of where it happened 35.4503 latitude -98.2033 longitude (Pictured above) if u have any questions I'd be happy to answer.
