Pterosaur Sightings in Hawaii

In reply to one of my blog posts, in the middle of 2012, I received the following email:

I am writing you because I have also seen a Pterydactyl like creature on the Big Island. Twice actually in the last 2 months. My husband and son also saw one about two weeks ago. I have been doing all kinds of research to see who else has seen this because it seems quite crazy, but I am abosolutely positive in what I saw.

However, the bird that I saw was not with a 30 ft wing span. The first time: (about two months ago) [about mid-May, 2012] What I saw, was maybe 100 ft up? But at that height I would estimate the wingspan to approximately 6 feet and it was very dark in color. I saw it in Kona and was completely astonished when looking at it because it was completely unlike anything else I have ever seen and it looked like nothing else I can explain other than a pterydactyl.

I told my husband about it and talked about it quite a bit, because I was so fascinated by it. I saw it again or perhaps a different one about a week or so later downtown Kona on my way to work. The second one seemed a bit smaller maybe 5 ft wingspan.

Well two weeks ago we moved into a new home in Kona about 2 miles South from our other home and my husband and son saw the Pterydactyl fly over our house and circle around.

As of February 1, 2013, I have had no further communications with the eyewitness.

Another Pterosaur Sighting in Hawaii

When it passed across to the right of me I then realized it was a living creature because it began to flap its wings and continued to flap . . .

Pterosaur Sightings in Georgia

Both birds had what I can only guess to be 15-20′ wing spans and the motion of their wings as they flew saw very slow, the head was long and ended in a point, wings ended in a point and appeared to be featherless . . .
