Okay, so I understand that this is literally called WhatBird.com (emphasis on bird), but I was just wondering... is there anyone here who thinks that Bigfoot is a possibly real thing?

Of course. You didn't know? 😛

Well, I’m no longer busy, so I suppose I can tell my story. It started in 2016. I was hiking by a creek when suddenly a rock came flying into the creek. It didn’t drop from a tree or roll down a hill. The only explanation I can think of is if it was thrown, which doesn’t leave many options. It happened again a while later after I stayed out of the woods for a few months. Flash forward to last year and I was at a campout. It was dead quiet during a campfire and the coyotes were howling. Then, among the howls, there was a much deeper howl, not like any coyote I’ve ever heard. At another camp out, I was hearing weird screeches, and this will sound crazy, but it reminded me of monkeys. To add to that, for the past year or so, I’ve seen strange large footprints with toes visible. The interesting stuff started a few weeks ago at the beginning of the summer. I was walking home from a relatively successful day of birding when something small and reddish-brown ran across the creek and into the woods. It reminded my almost of a mini orangutan. The most recent encounter was also me walking back from a birding day when there was a large splash from in the creek over a ridge, so I couldn’t see it. It was for sure something large running through the water. I’m not sure what it was, but I’ve been scared ever since. Like I said before, I only think I’ve had an encounter. I’ll never be sure.
