Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“It was the biggest bird I have ever seen. I saw some buzzards several weeks ago and there was no comparison in size. We have a boat down by the pond that is 16 feet long, and I would say the wingspan of the bird was 14 feetĂ˘â‚¬Âť, she said.
The bird was approximately 300 to 400 feet from us and it flew over the pond and lifted up high in a tree. It stayed there five to 10 minutes. I got a good look at it through my binoculars. It looked like it was about four feet tall.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“It looked like a prehistoric bird. It was really fantastic,Ă˘â‚¬Âť Mrs. Chappell said. Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“The head didnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t have any feathers and it had a long neck, crooked, kind of S shaped. The body was covered with feathers and was grey or charcoal colored. We couldnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t tell much about the feet, but it had long legs.
