The following is an account of thunderbird sighing last week by a father and son as they drove to their hotel in Pacifica, Missouri (though a commenter on Crytpozoology Online thinks that they may have actually been in Pacific, Missouri from some of the details in their account):
We were in Pacifica MO, tonight around 11:30 and we noticed a massive flying creature, not once but three times. My son even noticed it on his own the third time. We were near a large cliff/mountain with some type of cave openings. We don’t live in the area, I can say for sure we turned onto a road called viaduct road, went past a fire station and continued on for about 1 mile before we first noticed it. It was brownish/grey and the body portion was at least the size of a large adult human. This creature was tracking us – in a circle pattern. We were driving an escalade with the blue color headlights, this may have cause interest in us. The third time around us we viewed it in front of the vehicle, around driver side and around towards the rear of the vehicle, the factory tinted windows did help it vanish into the sky from out point of view.
Please understand when we could see it the range must have been about 150 feet in the air, not more than 250 feet. The distance was never less than 100 yards, often much greater. We were going about 35- 45 MPH. I have never thought of anything like this in my life!
The pair found their encounter with the large bird so disturbing that neither was able to sleep. Unfortunately there are no pictures from the sighting, and even tracking down the exact location where it occurred may be difficult due to the witnesses unfamiliarity with the area. Never the less, if you are in the area around Pacifica (or maybe Pacific), Missouri, keep an eye on the sky as you may get a chance to glimpse this amazing creature.
