A long time ago on some TV special i saw this pic of a  supposed thunderbird tacked to the back of a farm building. I've been looking for it for a long time just to take another look and see how real it looks now. Anyone else seen it or know where it is?

There was a topic several months ago looking for the same picture. I've never seen it posted anywhere, though I know what you're talking about. Wish I could find it. :/

This photo makes me crazy.  I have spent hours searching online and libraries for this stupid picture.

I remember seeing it in a book when I was young (before teh intrawebs) at my grandparents house.

Grrrr...

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

I recall seeing it (I think) in an old book from the local library, though the book was so old and falling apart I doubt they'd still have it.

There's obviously something supernatural about this photo, as it somehow manages to elude every possible person that's searching for it. laugh.gif

LOL.  

I never thought much about the photo until some tv show talked about how it has "mysteriously disappeared" from the world.

It's got to be out there someplace.

There is a story that in April 1890, two cowboys in Arizona killed a giant birdlike creature with an enormous wingspan. It was said to have had smooth skin, featherless wings like a bat and a face that resembled an alligator. This description has some similarity to that of a prehistoric pterodactyl, an animal whose existence was known at the time. They are supposed to have dragged the carcass back to town, where it was pinned with wings outstretched across the entire length of a barn. A picture of this event may have been published in the local newspaper, the Tombstone Epitaph. It should be noted that Cryptozoology.com[2] has an account of this story with the events taking place in the state of Texas.

I wonder if anyone keeps newspapers that long? laugh.gif

Searching Cryptozoology.com to see if they have anything.

This picture is what I often see as an example of the "lost photo".

Not what I remember.

The pic I remember was of a huge bird hanging or nailed to a barn door with a bunch of guys in front of it.

*shrug*

Not one of those silly civil war versions either.
