One summer day many years ago in a small town named Santa Maria, a group of us boys, 5 in total including myself, were glad to be out of school. We were so bored of watching T.V. so we decided that we wanted to go for a swim out in the nearby canal.
We all got ready and were on our way. As we were on our way we had to walk past a forest-like land. All of a sudden, my friend Moose heard something calling him saying “hey”, but we simply ignored it and kept on our way. Note that four of us were 13 years of age while the 5th kid, Moose’s brother, was 6 years old. We settled on the street next to the canal while the forest-like land was still behind us -giving us shade- next to the road of the canal.
During the 1970’s, terrified residents all over the state of Texas reported seeing an enormous flying creature which later became known as the “Texas Big Bird”. We spoke with a man who claimed to have seen something unusual flying over him. Could there be a correlation between both? Check out his story below.
“I had the damnedest experience once back in high school. This was in Northeast Houston around 1992. I was playing Frisbee with friends in the street of a typical suburban neighborhood. This was probably early afternoon on a weekend or perhaps just after school on a bright sunny day.
As I jumped up to catch an over thrown Frisbee, out of the blue appeared this huge bird just above me. It was at most 20 feet off the ground, and appeared much closer. I didn’t see its head, but I saw its legs and thought they were as big as human legs.
Once again we received a chilling encounter coming from one of the most heavily active paranormal cities in all of Texas, Donna. Check out this story below.
“I recall my mom telling my brothers and sisters about something really scary that happened to a friend of hers years ago in Donna, TX. Her son was very mean and disrespectful to his mother. She was always crying and didn’t know what to do with him. One day he did the same thing as usual and stormed out of the house running.
Well, where do I start.. Took me some guts to share my story. As soon as I read about the black cloaked lady on Victoria Road I remembered my similar encounter back in 2003. I use to stay up late in those days, Just married and I still stayed out late with my friends.
“Yeah, we were driving down South “I” Road in the height of Las Milpas, TX. My mom was driving, my aunt next to her, 4 of my cousins in the back seats and myself in the truck looking back. Suddenly, my mom was like, “Que es esooo??!!! (What is that??!!!).” We all looked as she slowed down a bit.
It was like a second when we realized that thing was like a man with huuuuge wings struggling to fly. We screamed in panic and whatever that thing was heard us, stopped and fell into the monte (forest). It was almost getting dark, but there was still enough sunlight to see what we saw. Super scary, I kept screaming thinking that thing was going to follow us. We were really in shock. There are things here between us that we don’t even know.
I experienced seeing this creature about 2 years ago. It was the Saturday before Fathers Day 2014. I was driving back home to Brownsville from having spent the day with my cousins. I always exit on Eddie Lucio Highway but on this night for some reason I exited by the flea market and turned into Old Port Isabel Rd. I was driving home with my 4 young daughters and as I almost reached the end of the road I noticed what I thought was a man standing by the side of the road.
I naturally slowed down to let him cross the narrow road. I clearly remember his pants (jeans) but for some reason I don’t recall seeing his face. It’s as if he had hypnotized me. Anyway, as he crosses the road the next thing we saw was him kinda hurrying up to cross and then halfway he swung really big wings out and I can still remember they were huge, large, black and he grabbed onto a tree and climbed on it and flew away.
Throughout the years, there have been unusual reports surfacing from all around the state of Texas involving flying creatures. Check out what this man in Dallas, Texas had to say about his bizarre and creepy encounter.
My experience was here in Dallas, TX. Myself and a few cousins of mine had a night out drinking and were on our way to my cousin’s house late at night around 3-4 am. As we were driving on the side road by the old St. Cecilia Catholic Church, we saw this big-ass black thing that looked like a bird flying close to our car.

This story is about my father and his encounter with a flying being / humanoid in the South Texas county of Hidalgo. He worked for the sheriff’s department for a number of years.
My father has investigated over 14 homicides, he has had his fair share of experience and has “been around” as they say. Anyway, this is the story he would tell my family and I, told from my father’s POV :
“A late December night.. while driving down the old Military highway after being called by a citizen saying his chickens had been being slaughtered more and more every day, I couldn’t help but notice how dark La Lomita looked as I pulled closer and closer to the old asylum, near where the man lived who called to make a report.
As I arrived and got down from my unit, the man tells me he has heard weird sounding noises throughout the night and he wakes up to tools missing and his chickens being killed and eaten, with nothing but heads and feathers being left behind.

In 1977 I was a senior at Frenship High School in Wolfforth Texas.
I rode a dirt bike behind where I lived and would run alongside a railroad track to get to a friend’s house and hang out.
This story comes to us from West Texas. Check it out.
“Well, it happened in the town of Post, Texas while my brother and I were young. It happened one night while walking home on a hot West Texas Summer night while walking in the alley towards our home.
While walking down the alley, I get a feeling we are being followed, so I tell my little brother, Mike, if he sees what I see at the end of the alley. A very tall, black figure that you could not see his face, but the darkness of his figure.
So we begin to walk faster and as we do the the figure begins to move faster, but as if floating on the dirt towards us, so we begin to run even faster and the black figure begins to catch up til we get home and slide through the screen door pale as a ghost,shaking and scared. We told my mom and she was really scared for us and we never found out what that figure was.”-John
