|Flying object that looks like a Hawk or Eagle
I saw a hovering object in the softball field at work. It was around 2 AM and as I slowly walked closer to it I noticed it looked like a huge hawk or eagle that was as big as a man. It was hovering w/ it's wings closed. I heard a low mechanicle sound coming from it. I also heard some tones like you would hear on a computer or telephone. I picked up a rock and threw it at the object. I saw the rock deflect off of it and when the rock hit it, it sounded like it was hitting metal. The object spreaded it's wings in mid air, I briefly saw tiny green and red lights flash on it, and then it made a sound like a hawk or eagle as it began to fly towards the south. I would guess this thing was 5 to 6 ft in height, and had a 15 to 20 ft wing spand.
Afterwards I read this one story online that a college kid from Colorado went to Mexico with a couple of his classmates that were from that country. They were hiking near the US-Mexico border outside of Texas in the late 1990s. They were resting between two hills behind some large trees near an isolated road. A military type vehicle drove up and stopped. The college hikers were out of it's view about 30 yards away. Four men got out of the vehicle, three of them appeared to be Chinese and one a Mexican National. The three men that appeared to be Chinese seemed to be speaking in an oriental language.
About two minutes later the college hikers saw this huge bird fly up and landed 20 yards from the four men. They went and got the huge bird and carried it and placed it in the back of their vehicle, then drove away.
I thought this story might have some connection to what I witnessed in July 2006. My guess is that this bird type object could be some sort of spying flying object that an Asian country such as China is conducting on the U.S. I've heard of several large bird sightings in the Southwestern USA for years. I just find all this to be interesting.
