North of Thornton, Colorado
I just read your "weird" section and saw that you had sightings from witnesses
of strange birds.
I am an avid bird lover and own a Cokatiel and Amazon Parrot so maybe being into birds I let my excitement run away with me. But back in 1992 I was driving north out of Thornton, Colorado on my way to see my grandparents in Brighton Colorado. I looked up when I saw a bird flying slowly overhead as I like to look at birds and saw that this one looked "sickly." What I mean by that is that it had few feathers and looked "boney" as though it was starved.
This bird was about six to eight feet long and had a wing span near to that even though I am only guessing because I was driving and looking through the upper windshield at it. It had a beak that made up about two feet of the bird and the beak seemed to have indentations in both sides.
I had my window down but could hear no sounds from this bird as it flew northeast out over a wheatfield.
I have never seen a bird like that before but I beleive that I have seen one since flying a few miles to the east of where I saw this one about ten years later.
The area where I saw this bird is about 15 miles north of Denver, Colorado and about a half a mile west of Interstate 25 just north of Thornton, Colorado.A
