The Alaskan city of Juneau is buzzing after a resident reported what can  best be described as a 'thunderbird' soaring through the sky.

The weirdness began when the witness, named Tabitha, posted about her sighting to a Juneau community Facebook group.

According to her, as she was driving down the road a "huge black bird"  appeared overhead and sported a wingspan which she estimated to be "at  least 20 feet."

Despite living in the area her entire life, Tabitha insisted that his  bird was unlike anything she had ever seen before and marveled that it  was "almost the size of a small airplane."
