Massive Birds Observed in Alabama, Missouri and Kentucky

“I used to live in Springville, Alabama. About 8 years ago (2010), during a cold winter spell, I woke up early one morning and looked out my front window. About 30 yards away, I saw three extremely large black birds by the rear fence. Two were on the ground, walking around by the frozen pond. The third was standing on a fencepost with its wings outstretched, I think to catch the morning sun to warm up. They were all black with immense rectangular wings. The neck was long, very vulture-like, but thickly feathered. I grabbed my camera and tried to stealthily open the door to get a picture, but the birds all took off before I could get outside to get a picture. I grabbed a measuring tape and went down to get an idea just how big these things were. The one I'd seen on the fencepost gave me the best measurements. I traced the wingspan on the fence and determined the wingspan was 18 1/2 feet!!! I was raised in Kansas and had seen vultures, eagles and hawks all my life, but I have NEVER seen any bird that large. I've never seen them again. I hope the next time I do, I and my camera are ready.” Rick Lambott


“When my nephew was around 10 years old, he was hanging out with his friend at his friend's house out in the country. They were outside by a car talking, when they noticed a large shadow above. They looked up and saw a large black bird. He said it was the size of a small plane. He is 30 years old now and is still amazed at what he saw. He had never heard about Thunderbirds. I told he had seen the legendary Thunderbird. This was in Northeast Missouri. I have never seen one myself. I told him he was lucky to see one." Sharrie F


“In Frenchburg, Kentucky I witnessed a four-foot-tall woodpecker; red head, black, with four white rings around the bottom of the wings. It was in 1989, June. It had landed on top of a building across from the building I was walking out of! Where I live now." BK

Facebook event announcement: Jack Cary - Cryptozoologist / Author - 'Paranormal Planet' - Arcane Radio

Join me as I welcome crypto researcher and investigator Jack Cary to Arcane Radio. Jack is the founder and current director at the Paranormal Intelligence Agency and a protege of the late JC Johnson at Crypto Four Corners, where he continues as a researcher. After many years of investigating crypto-creatures and paranormal phenomena in North America he has accumulated mounds of evidence that may prove the existence of strange creatures. His research lends credence to the notion that inter-dimensional doorways intermittently open, permitting the unintentional transference of a person, or being, across parallel realities and time. Jack's new book is titled 'Paranormal Planet.' - This should be an entertaining show!
