Historical Look at Years Surrounding Mothman in New Mothman Documentary

A new Mothman film, with cryptid researcher Lyle Blackburn to narrate. Go to site for a clip. This take on Mothman says it will take a look at "actual events" and new information:

New 'Mothman' Documentary Recounts Actual Events in the 1960's - Bloody Disgusting!: Seth Breedlove, the film’s director promises recently-discovered history connected to the Mothman legends as well as new, untold encounter stories. He goes on the say that the collapse of the Silver Bridge is integral to the story but does not believe the tragedy was connected to the Mothman stories. (source: Brad Miska, Bloody
Preview says it will come out in June, but they are asking for contributions on their Kickstarter page.

David Weatherly: Winged Creature Attacks in the Bronx: 1904

From researcher:David Weatherly: Winged Creature Attacks in the Bronx: 1904:

 "It's not an owl, it's a devil with wings. Sure I know an owl when I see one, but no man ever seen an owl with wings six feet wide. And it "whooo's" like a ghost in a graveyard too, when it's not growling beneath its breath. Why men, he's no owl; he a devil; and I'm going to get transferred."
That's what Policeman Patrick J. Hickey had to say about his encounter with a strange and scary winged beast in 1904.

Interesting the owl is once again offered as the explanation for mysterious, supernatural type winged creatures. Owls were really the culprits in the Kelly-Hopkinsville alien invasion, Mothman, The Owlman, The Flatwoods monster. It could have been something quite usual, as Weatherly points out, or, not. There's just enough strangeness to make us wonder.

I had not heard of this particular story, a nice report from Weatherly.

Oregon Thunderbird Sighting

This by way of Lon Strickler at Phantoms and Monsters. A snippet:

My dad told me a story. Him and my mom were fishing. This was the early 80s. We lived in Oregon. He didn't see a winged humanoid (the topic of the show that evening) but what he did see, what he described, was a Thunderbird. He said the bird was so big, it had a wing span of ten feet and when it kind of dove down toward the boat, the water around the boat began making waves from the wing's flap.
