Nope. That one has been posted numerous times already throughout this very topic.

While I'm on a book buying spree, does anyone know if the Reader's Digest edition of "Mysteries of the Unexplained" is the correct book? It's in my cart and ready to go if anyone knows for sure. original.gif

look for Thunderbirds Again and Again, Pursuit: Journal of the Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained, April 1972, by Ivan T Sanderson, he is supposed to have had a copy of the missing pic at one point.

Time life put out a book called Mysteries of the Unexplained or something like that as well as readers digest....also, I was reading another forum, a reader there suggested that it may have been in a Ripleys Believe it or Not book. sorry Im not more helpful tonight, just got home from a long, cold, wet fishing trip where we decided that trout may be a cryptid since we saw so few of em!

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?


Hi Murder 101, I've seen your Thunderbird photo that you have also seen that is tacked to the front of a barn while a bunch of men are standing in front of it.  The photo you are looking for can be found in an Old West Magazine; which one I'm not sure, but I know for sure that I have the magazine in storage.  Also, in the Old West Magazines you can also find another photo of some men in the Union Army (I think, but they could possibly be in the Confederate Army) out in Arizona standing behind a Gigantic Teradactyl that they shot down that is laying on the ground in front of them, both birds are absolutely huge and their wing spans are probably 20 feet or more.

Keep up the good work my friends.

The Civil War pterosaurs are faked, most of them were done for reenactments or for presentations and television shows. They've been since circulated as true photographs when, in fact, they never were.

Do you have any place that we can look at that can back up your statements Ebonykrow, of the photograph being fake, or are we just to accept your words.

I've seen a better photograph in the magazine than this one, and most of these people seem to believe the photo herein is real.

and then there is this page also...

which is very interesting.

I believe the entire idea has been debunked many times in these forums.

Don't have to debunk the photo because there hasn't been any pterosaurs since oh...220 - 65.5 million years ago.  Source

Now, I believe the picture we are discussing is real but not the content.

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

Has anyone tried looking using other names of giant birds, such as the Roc?

Quote

The story of the roc is found in numerous places, and has parallels in many more for example, Anka of Arabia, the Simurgh of Persia, the Garuda of India, to the Phoenix and even the Thunderbird of Native American legend.
