Giant birds are being seen around the US fairly frequently. But it’s hard to get good measurements of these creatures before they fly away. Cryptozoology lovers will be pleased to see how one couple captured a monster sized bird against a backdrop that can only help researchers pin this crypto-avian down!
I saw this video recently and was impressed with how the video owner reported the account. Taken by Dan & Denise Rojas of the GreenPowerScience channel on YouTube, they show us a very large bird sitting atop some trees.
Here’s the helpful part. They tell us what the trees are (maples), and give us estimates for the branches around the bird. Because of that we get a better sense of scale as to how big this animal is.
Quite a few people think this bird is a Golden Eagle, and they may be right. Some think it’s an owl, but the beak and profile are that of a hawk or eagle. Owls have flat faces.
The important thing they left out was where was this video taken? That would help us identify what bird this could be, that is, IF we can identify it. New species of animals are popping up all over the planet so who knows.
My point in sharing this video is to highlight how well they used natural surroundings to give us a better idea of the size of the bird. Taking a photo of something against the infinite sky just doesn’t help. (Same with UFO photos.)

Keep your eyes on the sky (when you’re not driving!!), and keep those cameras ready!
Til the next time …
(It’s bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a “bird dog”! LOL!! The bird is just behind the dog on the shoreline. It’s all about perspective.)
