July 25, 1977, in Illinois started with a family picnic but would end with a terrifying encounter as 10-year-old Marlon Lowe is attacked by a giant bird with a wingspan of almost twenty feet. It would lead to discovering a history of a creature able to create thunder with a flap of its wings and ability to carry off men and children alike.
Join Gary and GoldieAnn as they delve into the ancient legends of these creatures and the particular case of the Lawndale Thunderbird.
