'Pterodactyl' Sightings in New York, Pennsylvania & Maryland

“My wife has told me a story of when she was backpacking around 1988 in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. She said she saw a large flying animal over a small lake. She estimated that it had a 20 foot wingspan. But the weirdest thing was that she said it didn't look like a bird, but rather a featherless reptile like a pterodactyl! It wasn't just gliding around. She said it was beating its wings and was surprisingly very fast. She isn't the kind of woman that makes things up either...very honest. She also said that she wasn't scared of it but more in awe of how large it was.” AC


“I saw this bird in the 70’s. I said to my friend Sherry Ann, 'Look, it’s a pterodactyl.' That was after the fact because of the fear I was speechless. This was so large it flew low over me about 10 feet or so above me. All these years I knew it wasn’t normal but I was around ten. I guess it was night time. We were camping on the water, walking out onto a pier. I live in Maryland. I can’t really remember but I believe we were on the eastern shore. That bird could have picked me up like I was a cat. It was as large as a small plane, a Cessna perhaps, but I tell you it wasn’t a vulture or eagle or anything of that or this time!” WDM


“When I was 8 years old in 1973, one summer evening, my two brothers and me were playing in our backyard in Limeport, Pennsylvania. I heard the sound of flapping wings so I looked up. There was a giant pterodactyl flying overhead just above the tops of the trees. I yelled, 'Look at that!' as I pointed up at it. My brothers looked up at it. We then took off running into the house.” D10


“I never told anyone for they would of said I was crazy but delivering morning newspapers in Scarsdale, New York in the late spring of 1962 or 19633 at 5:30 AM, I heard a screech, very loud, and out of the clouds, a huge bird-like creature floated by. It looked like one of those pterodactyls. I never forgot it and I never told any one of it. For what it's worth WTF?” NQ
