Mythical Winged 'Harpy' Humanoid Observed in Chicago's Little Village

A Chicago man reports several winged beings / humanoids seen in the suburbs and city. He is not positive as to what he witnessed, describing one as being similar to a mythological 'Harpy.'

I recently received a series of winged being sightings in Chicago:

"Hi Lon. Here are my 2 other sightings. It was actually near a winged humanoids sighting that was here in the North Riverside in the Lyons area of the Chicago suburbs. Of course, you already know that the forest preserves basically surrounds the Chicago area and North Riverside, Illinois is a unique place. Houses have been there right next to the parks since its inception.  Residents there can literally walk to the Des Plaines River from their house. If only they would take the time to look up and observe, they would see many things. I have seen blue herons and blue jays and much every time I go. Cool place, strangled by the pollution of corporate America and Chicago's finest companies that have direct access to the waterways, but still surviving despite.

The exact location was 7930 Ogden Ave, Lyons, Illinois. It was 8:30 PM local time on April 17, 2019. I was in the parking lot, leaving a gym right next to the Des Plaines River. It was quick and the thing noticed me. It was a huge bird with 6 foot wingspan, layers of feathers, with a crest on its head. The most notable feature was its long spaded tail. It looked so cool. It looked young and as soon as it noticed me it immediately made a turn right back in the canopy. It was actually kind of interesting. It definitely did not want to be seen. I wonder what kind of bird that was? Either way it was cool.

My other sighting was just plain bizarre. It was a hot day in September for us in Chicago. About 86 degrees F on Friday, September 17, 2019 at about 3:30-4:30 PM local time at 2640 S. Sacramento Ave (Little Village) while I was at my front door. I look up and there's what appears to be a mythological Harpy flying really high and in a vertical pattern and very slow. The thing looked exhausted and looked like a shorter person or a kid. Definitely humanoid with feet dangling, wings barely flapping and obviously not flying straight, in that up and down vertical manner. It was flying in the northerly direction, towards O'Hare International. Strange indeed. It was bald and no feathers on the body. Just feathers on its wings. It also looked dark or black." DF

Huge 'Gargoyle' Encountered Several Times in Stillman Valley, Illinois

An Illinois woman contacted me about her 3 encounters with a huge Gargoyle-like being in Stillman Valley, Illinois. Three other witnesses have also encountered this winged entity.

I recently received the following account:

"I live near Rockford, Illinois, specifically in Stillman Valley in Ogle County. My friend and I were driving around 3-4AM and we saw a huge 7-10 foot tall creature that had a huge wingspan. We almost hit it with the car, but when it got close it just flew straight up and over the top of the car.

It looked like a Gargoyle. My friend and I both looked at each other, with our jaws dropped, and exclaimed like, "Did you see that? What was that?!" This was in 2015.

Then a year later, in the exact same place, when my mom was driving me to the hospital because I had a horrible migraine, she also had an encounter with the Gargoyle! It occurred around the same time, early in the morning.

I also use to drive that same road, every night for about a year straight, in 2016 to take my girlfriend home. In the exact same spot we witnessed it together! So in total, I have seen this same Gargoyle-like creature 3 times and 3 other people encountered it with me.

The location was right by a trucking company called Glendenning Brothers Trucking right off our Route 72 in Stillman Valley, Illinois" LJ

NOTE: a Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research member will be going to the location soon. Lon
