OBSERVED: I'm really not sure what I saw. I was going back to Birmingham on interstate 59 exit 166 as I was going down the ramp to get on the interstate this is what I saw I cought something out of the corner of my eye and thought is was an owl but then I releaized that there was no branch there and when this thing looked at me I remember seeing to huge eyes and it looked like it had it's arm leaning on a tree it was about 6 to 8 feet high and a dark color sort of a grey black blended in with the trees. I just cought it for a few seconds.. I'm just not sure, I just know it was not an owl..




ENVIRONMENT: Hills and Cliffs near the woods

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Smykal:

During the interview the witness added that she is certain it was not an owl because she could see a shoulder as it peered at her from behind the tree. She also stated that it had green eyes & that it never moved from behind the tree. Sighting was of short duration as she was driving off hwy exit.
