The call was a triable screech & not what Id need to here walking alone at night , we where in my home but I went outside to see if it was visible, not this time. The call was only of that of a Thunderbird Know dought in my mind.

Umm I severely doubt it, sorry.  Thunderbirds are one of those things that are complete BS even by the styandards of some of the other Cryptoids around.  Not even remotely possible if you read what their descriptions are supposed to be...

QUOTE
A report in the April 26, 1890 Tombstone Epigraph listed the creature's wingspan as an alarming 160 feet, and noted that the bird was about 92 feet long, about 50 inches around at the middle, and had a head about eight feet long. The beast was said to have no feathers, but a smooth skin and wingflaps "composed of a thick and nearly transparent membrane... easily penetrated by a bullet." Perhaps the hardest part of this story to swallow is that two horses could manage to haul a dead behemoth like this for any distance. http://www.parascope.com/en/cryptozoo/predators10.htm

There are some big birds out there. Many sightings have been documented about 'the big bird'. Another part of the strange phenomenon that surrounds us.

Sorry, I don't believe you. You may have heard something, but it wasn't Thunderbirds.

It really is impossible for Thunderbirds (or surviving Pterodactyls, or Terradons) to exist today.

Even if they did...we'd know about it.

They're a myth.

Giant reptilian birds that survived the extinction of the other dinosaurs.

Apparently they decided to settle in America around the 17th century and are extremely camera shy.

There have been a few pictures of "captured" or "dead" Thunderbirds, all were hoaxes.

So far there is no evidence that these creatures still exist today.

Ravens can make a variety of noises and enjoy being malicious and "goofing off" so to speak, with humans and other ravens. Sometimes they will race eachother, do stunts while flying, and be abnoxious. It's possible you were scared half to death by a simple, common, but wonderful bird.

Besides, your post sounds like mindless poetry.

So you heard a screeching sound during a storm and automatically knew it was a thunderbird? Well; that's good enough for me! Call me convinced!  rolleyes.gif

Read some 'Big Bird' literature...scores of documented incidents. Some think these creatures to be paranormal. wink2.gif

I agree that the account of the Bird from 1890 is stupidly large for anything living in this day and age, but I think it's slightly ignorant to disregard the existence of something bigger than we know of.  If you search around, you'll find that there are many many accounts of huge birds, with enourmous but believable wingspans, in the region of 15-20 feet. Some people believe they are Thunderbirds(which should be taken into consideration), and others believe they are simply really big Herons, Owls or other unusually large birds.

Just thought I'd add my opinion. Thunderbirds shouldn't be ruled out as a possibility though, as the white ring around the neck of the birds appears time after time in the accounts from people, and is a classic example of what the Native Americans saw as a main feature of the Thunderbird.

Couldn't it be possible that there are Thunderbirds but that they are ghosts? That would explain why they can't be found and it would mean that dinosaurs (if they are dinosaurs) had a soul

Hi There!

Im In scotland, two of my uncles saw a huge bird one night in a remote part of the Highlands.  They heard wings flapping and a screech noise and looked up and caught the thing in their torch beams.  They told me it was large, much larger than an eagle or a seabird.  I looked on the net and found a similar sighting in Yorkshire, England.  This was 1993.

So I have no problem believing thats theres a big bird out there, maybe its nocturnal so its not seen often ohmy.gif

From the lone shieling of the misty island
Mountains divide us, and the waste of seas;
Yet still the blood is strong, the heart is Highland,
And we, in dreams, behold the Hebrides.

Herons are much larger than your average eagle or sea-bird. They also have a godawful screech or croak that can make your hair stand on end. They're also known for nocturnal migration. Seems like it would be a fairly likely possibility to me..
