  • When people call me annoying or a 3 year old I act like one and annoy them like heck

Posted 18 September 2013 - 11:51 AM

This as you can see s my username , but when I was 7 I thought I saw a big bird it was probably a trick of the light and height of the animal flying aboveit scared me tk death. When I did some research is when I finallyheard about the thunderbird and one story about how one picked up a boy and carried him  about 70 feet.

P.S I could see details of it it was black with some white around its neck it also was a little bald on its head( that's also how I got my username)

May I ask how old you are now?

Also the whereabouts of where you saw this.

I'm not sure how you worked out the scaling, there was another animal flying above the bird?

Nice to see a fellow El Pasoan. I saw something similar in the area when I was about 15 or 16.

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.

Yes, but that was 13 years ago and memory isn't as reliable as we'd like to think it is.

Just consider it as a possibility is all I'm saying.

I agree with keninsc.

Also, what makes you so sure of it's size? How did you know you didn't misjudge?

You've never said how big it looked to you, so how big? How big was the hole you were looking through?

You also commented "it was probably a trick of the light and height of the animal flying aboveit"
Does this mean you think it was a trick of the eye and not as big as you think it was? Sorry, I don't understand that quote.

Turkey vultures...they always surprise me how big they look in flight, even from a distance!  "Wow, look at the size of that bird (wingspan) and then I'll realize, oh it's just another T vulture. They are all over where I live in Texas.

When someone is a little boy/girl, Objects seem bigger from their point of view compared to an adult.
But at the same time I'm open to the possibilities of undiscovered species. The coelacanth once thought
to be extinct with the dinosaurs was discovered off the coast of Africa in 1938.

   It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve.
But to much skepticism can make you narrow minded to extraordinary possibilities.

I'm from Oklahoma and I've spent a lot of years out in the boonies. I've seen buzzards, vultures and many eagles. I've also seen giant ass golden eagles. What trips me out about the golden eagles I witnessed is the fact that they were bigger than anything I've seen outside of the zoo. Doesn't necessarily mean I was seeing a thunderbird.

Also the fact that there were two of them and they were in an area where they shouldn't be.

How big was this bird? How far away from you? I'm willing to bet that it was a regular ole bird.
