You wouldn't wan to run into these big birds on Sesame or any other street, but MONSTERQUEST goes looking for them.
- Monsters lurk among us - or do they? Get closer to the truth than ever before!
- Shake your tail feathers, we're hunting for legendary gigantic birds!
- Skeptics and believers get equal time to make their case.
From the lochs of Scotland to the forests of America's Northwest, MONSTERQUEST sets out to get to the bottom, once and for all, of our most persistent and compelling creature stories. All we know of so many monsters are campfire stories, blurry films and grainy photographs, so this fascinating new series takes a fresh look at the legends and seeks new, reliable evidence. Open-eyed historical research and real scientific analysis set the stage for groundbreaking field work: high-tech expeditions to the home turf of legendary monsters. If MONSTERQUEST can?t find them, nobody can!
Ancient myths and modern sightings put the team on the trail of huge, terrifying avian creatures.
While Native Americans have long revered huge birds called Thunderbirds, modern encounters suggest that these creatures are more than just stories. In this flighty episode, MONSTERQUEST follows up on a rash of giant bird sightings in Illinois, Texas and Alaska back in the 1970's. And the team investigates the giant bird with a 15-foot wingspan that allegedly attacked a small child in Illinois. Could there really be a giant bird or is it mass hysteria?
Now this is extreme bird-watching, MONSTERQUEST-style!
