Dragon-like??? He looks like a giant hawk.

With a 20-25 foot wing span when I saw him.

Metamora, Michigan, about 2AM in the morning in January. Snowing out and the moon was somehow shining on the falling snow. I barely could make it out, but it flew over the house, and the wingspan easily could have spanned the whole roof.

January, 2000, that is.

Can you give a full description of what you saw?..I've tracked these things (Thunderbirds) on the east coast of the US after a couple of sightings in Maine, upstate New York butthe real hotspot is west of you in Illinois. All sightings have been during the day and yours is the first night time encounter I've heard of. Based on that alone it may be something else - and there are other big flying creatures out there!

Can you give a full description of what you saw?Hmm. At first I thought it was a hang glider, but then I realized what a stupid rationalization that was, considering it was so late and there are no mountains or whatever in the area. It was black in shape,  moved slowly, soundlessly, through the air. Again, the wingspan was around 20-25 feet, and I had no idea what I could have been seeing. I'd say it was flying at maybe 20-30 mph, placing it about 10 feet above the top of the house. I blinked as the snow fell around me which was falling lightly. There was no wind so the snow flakes were falling straight down and glistening in the moon. When it passed, within a few seconds, I saw disturbances in the falling snow, spiraling around me, so I knew I wasn't hallucinating or anything similar. I saw no eyes, heard no noise, just a very gentle flight pattern, but it was goddamn huge.  I felt I saw something I "shouldn't" have seen. Afterwards, kundalini chills were running up and down my spine like mad, which only happens when I feel something deeply meaningful just occurred. What was it? Don't know. Thunderbird/mothman/dragon/pteradactyl. One of the most "paranormal" experiences I have ever had,.

What is the geography like in your area?..any high cliff faces, cave systems. Is it very wooded? How cold was it that night?..the other question have you heard of any other strange sightings in that area - of anything out of the norm which would include ufos, other strange creatures. What you are describing is definitely fitting the thunderbird but a nocturnal sighting is unheard of and in cold weather - this is throwing me off a bit.

When I was younger, this has probably been over ten years ago, I remember my uncle telling me he was driving home from work and suddenly a huge pile of manure falling out of the sky and crashing on his windshield. He said he nearly wrecked when it happened. The only explanation he had was that cows had begun to fly. I had heard of Thunderbirds before and started doing some more research. By the way, this took place in Southeast Tennessee. In my research, I found that Thunderbirds were supposedly migrating over that area during the timeframe that it happened. Looking back, I wish he would have collected what I believe to be Thunderbird feces and took it to someone to get looked at.

It was below freezing that night as it was snowing. I'd say about -3 degrees celsius or so. As for other strange sightings, yes, my neighbor saw a silver egg-shaped sphere in her front yard with a fork-like prong sticking out of the bottom of it. It was making all the dogs in the neighborhood howl. It disappeared after about five minutes. The egg-shaped object had appeared a year or two prior to me seeing the thunderbird or the dragon or whatever the hell it was.
