    Great Blue Heron is a great call, most things can be explained if you're willing, that said I wish my kids were still young so the MF Pterodactyl lady could play at their party.

    I've lived here my whole life and have seen many cranes near the small ponds and swampland in that area I'm talking about. This was definitely not a crane.
    Great Blue Heron is closer, but it has feahers wheras what I saw had skin/bone batlike wings. I got a good look at it with withs extended... This wasn't a case of it being too far away and not being able to distinguish.

    Could have been a Blue Heron with mange or someweird feather less bird flu and a snake attached to it's butt....

    A Great Blue Heron or Crane will eat snakes, and it's possible it had one its mouth. This is far, far, far (x alot) more likely than a pterodactyl or similar prehistoric creature.

    Chances of it being a bird: 100%

    Chances of it being a pterodactyl: 100% acid in your coffee

    They not only look prehistoric, they sound freakin' prehistoric, especially when they come in to a lake cove to feed at 3:30AM, after a night of hanging out (read, 'drinking') around a campfire. HOLY CRAP! I almost filled my sleeping bag when I heard them.

    Where is the picture? You saw a strange bird and couldn't snap a picture of the thing by pulling on the side of the road?

    Thread Fail.

    You stated you saw it "tonight" in the title of your thread. Stated in the post that it was sundown. Stated it "darted", meaning it was moving fast. So, there wasn't a lot of light and the thing moved fast yet you saw a lot of detail somehow. :rolleyes:

    Allright so you have seen other larger wild birds and have gathered what you saw couldnt have been them?
    Were you under any "influences" when you observed the beast?
    How far away from it do you suppose you were?
    Did it make any sounds ala screams,sound of leather skin wings flapping,etc...

    Honestly I know that there are some very convincing RC's out there and suspect possibly this may be the case.

    And if these things are flying around they would be very open and visible for many too see.
    Afterall they are the top of the bird food chain and other than man have zero rivals.
    So these creature should have no fear and be flying everywhere.
    I find it odd that no picture was taken in this day of cell cameras.
    I'll chalk this up too Ill believe it when I see it.

    Yes, it was at sundown, which I count as "tonight". PLENTY of visibility still. "Darted" means it flew directly across the overpass right in front of my car,a few feet abouve the ground, not that is was especially fast. Sorry my terminology isn't to your liking. I could care less whether you believe me or want to be the grammar nazi. I'd think you have better things to do that to try and disprove me over my grammar.

    100% not a dinosaur.

    Just a large bird of some type or maybe a demon.
