'Big Black Birdman' Observed in a Chicago West Englewood Backyard (Photos)


A South Chicago resident hears distinctive footsteps on the roof of her 2nd floor apartment. As she looks out of the window, into the backyard, she is shocked to see a 6 ft. black bird-like humanoid with wide wings and clawed feet.


On Friday February 28, 2020 I received a telephone call from 'HS' who lives in the area of W. 62nd St. & S. Paulina Ave. in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood.

HS states that on Wednesday February 26, 2020 at early dawn (estimate between 5:30 am - 6 am local time) his mother was awoken by 'footsteps' on the roof of their 2nd floor apartment. She looked out the window into the backyard and observed a 'big black birdman' landing in the backyard along the 6 foot fence. It was hopping and walking about as if it was chasing something. It then spread its wings and bound over the fence into the adjacent lot.

The height was about 6 ft compared to the fence and the wings were about 12+ ft. in width, judging by the width of the double gate (each gate is 5' 10" ft. wide) it was standing near. The wing shape was undetermined though it seemed to be broad and gargoyle-like. There were no distinguishable features on the body other than it was standing on double-toed clawed feet with a small appendage extending from the back of the foot (possible spur).

At the time and then later in the morning, HS was able to obtain photos of the tracks in the snow near the fence and in the backyard, as well as a line of tracks in the adjacent lot. He estimates that the length of the tracks are comparable to the length of a size 11 men's shoe and that the distance/stride of the tracks is 3-4 feet at the longest. Lon
