'I Believe I May Have Seen a PTEROSAUR!'

The witness was leaving church with his family when they noticed a large bird-like creature flying above the trees. The description indicates that this may have been a pterosaur.

I received the following account:

"It happened around 2013 in Dover, Ohio. I was just leaving church with my family when I saw something flying above the trees around the area. I noticed right away the differences between it and every bird I've seen. It flapped its wings far slower than any bird, suggesting a large size. It looked like it had some serious weight to it.

Interestingly, it appeared to be chasing a small flock of birds. Compared to said birds, it looked considerably larger; its head was at least as big as one of the birds.

After watching it for no more than 10 seconds, it disappeared into the trees. I guess I was too fascinated/intrigued by it to say anything to my family, which I regret.

I would like to point out we were fairly far away from it when I saw it, so I could clearly make out a silhouette, but nothing more.

Here's a simple sketch I did:

If anyone has any idea what else it could be, I'm all ears. Some people have said they thought it was a blue heron, but there are some issues with that theory. One of the most notable things about what I saw was its "crest" which was very noticeable even from the distance I saw it from.

Blue herons have a long, sharp beak. What I saw had nothing resembling that.

I think I would have noticed the feathers (including the tail).

Blue herons' legs are too short about their body to resemble what appeared to be a tail about double the length of the body.

Even with a wingspan attaining 6.6 feet, their wings flap relatively fast compared to the thing I saw.

What are your thoughts?" C
