I received the following sighting report this past weekend:
A buddy and I were looking at a swamp on Spring Creek in Spring, Texas on 6 July 2012. We were standing on shore looking around. I spotted one alligator and lots of beautiful dragonflies. Across the swamp, directly in front of us. We both watched the largest bird we had ever seen take flight from a tree and head directly for us. It was gray with no feathers. It had a wing-span of just over 3/4 the length of a pick-up truck and looked like a flying leather "V." It made a sharp right and landed in a tree. Its weight shook the entire top of the tree and from there we lost site. It had a white head, gray wings, and no noticeable feet. The wingspan has to be between ten and fifteen feet and had no feathers, only what appeared to me hide like a bat.
You may add this to your site. We would like to know what we saw. The photos on your site match the description of a huge, leather flying "V," and that best describes what we saw.
NOTE: I have been reporting on flying manta-ray shaped cryptids phenomena for a few years now...this is the first sighting of a similar creature (that I am aware of) away from the eastern part the United States. My latest post details some of the previous sighting locations and other information. There have been pterosaur-like cryptids reported throughout Texas, especially in the south...Lon
