Thunderbird Nest

Thunderbird Nest
The Thunderbird Nest was constructed to attract the Thunderbird as a guardian spirit. A trail leads to five beautiful hand-painted signs describing the legend and a rock formation of the nest depressed in the ground. The Ojibway (Anishinabe) people still perform ceremonies at the site. The legendary Thunderbird is often described as a super eagle, capable of transforming into a man, and able to cause lightning by the flashing of its eyes. It has been thought by the Aboriginals to be the guardian of mankind against his mortal enemy, the horned serpent of the underworld.
