Pere Marquette - Peoria, IL

My job takes me to all sorts of places. I spent last weekend in Peoria, IL, allegedly home to one of the mythical Thunderbirds.

Peoria, IL
See the tiny specks of birds in the sky?

Of course, those are no Thunderbirds. Human-sized eagle beasts shooting lightning bolts from their eyes would have been spectacular! Instead I spotted huge flocks of cawing birds circling the skyline of the city. They emerged each night at dusk. They were swooping and loud as heck, not unlike the winged monkeys in the Wizard of Oz. Sort of unsettling. I wonder what they were?
