Mystery of the Thunderbird: San Antonio

I've written about the mythological Thunderbird before, but it seems people in modern times keep reporting seeing this giant bird in the sky. What's going on? Is it a long-lost relative of the teronadon, thought to be extinct over 100 million years ago?

In San Antonio, Texas, there have been several recent reports of people seeing a gigantic bird.

Guadalupe Cantu III is one such witness. Ten years ago, he was finishing his paper route with a couple helpers as he had done many mornings before. However, he spotted something huge flying over his car. "We were afraid that it would come at us. So we stayed in the car till it passed this way. This thing's all feathers, all black. Much bigger than me. It looked at us. It had very stooped-up shoulders."

Although experts doubt it's a dinosaur, some believe it just might be a teratorn - the ancestors to modern day condors and vultures.

One of the most famous sightings in San Antonio was from 1976. Three teachers travelling on a deserted road had the unfortunate experien
ce of having a massive winged creature swoop down towards them.

Witness testimony is always questionable. Sometimes, the mind can play tricks on you. I offer up my explanation for all these sightings. Here is what I believe people are seeing in San Antonio:

OMG!! It's Bat Boy!!!
It would scare me to death to have a giant bird swoop down towards me.
I've seen the movie The Birds several times, and those little birds did some major bodily damage.
Imagine what a huge bird could do!!

I'm on vacation at my parents' house in CA. On Wed, my dad, son, brother, and I are going on a driving trip. My blog time has been almost nonexistent. I return to normal life on Aug 8th.

I'll stop by again soon. :-)

Bat Boy the Musical is awesome.

My neighbor in Wildwood saw a huge flying bird a couple of weeks ago. It turns out it was a peacock.

A giant condor escaped the Dallas zoo last year. Maybe it wanted to see the Alamo.

Actually it was me. I built one of those winged flying machines that you put over your arms and flap. You know, the kinds you see people falling over in old clips. Well mine actually works! So I've decided to go out and use it to scare teachers and paperboys. I hate teachers and paperboys!

Don't be mocking my Republic of Texas brothers and sisters, Pheonix. We come out of the womb with guns in our hands...

LOL

David Amulet said...

My dad lives not too far from there, and he has seen the large flying creature, too.

He figured it out though. It's a plane.

When I was younger, my cousins and I went on a picnic. To this day, my cousin swears he saw a condor.

Bat Boy was renamed Edgar by his adoptive family. He's really just an over-educated and misunderstood boy with funny ears.

The Bat Boy story is very detailed.

Vani said...

LOL...we seem to have been invaded by birds in this part of the country. or maybe its because they are tearing down trees to make houses, and now the animals like deer etc have no where to go so they constantly get run over on the new highways they're building and the vulchers are in heaven! ya think? :)

Phats said...

I think the residents of San Antonio are drinking the happy sauce, or this is a good way to get stephen king to visit to write a book

I believe it has more to do with the rise in thc levels in modern cannabis.

How many of these incidents involve ethanol, I wonder...

Metal mark: spot on with the bird poop. Yikes!

Grafs said...

A huge bird would be awesome. You'd have to seriously watch that it doesn't carry off your spouse or something.

phred said...

I am going to be in San Antonio on 8/14.. I will keep my eyes open and pass along any new info.
Keep in mind that there is a good amount of beer drank in San Antonio Tx.
