|Black Bird of Chernobyl|
|Theories|| · Spirit|
The Black Bird of Chernobyl was a cryptid rumored to have been sighted in the ruins of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant after its disaster in 1986. It is very similar to the famous cryptid Mothman in appearance. The creature was supposedly sighted by several radiation clean-up workers before they died.
The creature was described as being humanoid in appearance. Based on its name, it can be presumed to have been black or dark gray in color. It also possessed wings and glowing red eyes, just like the Mothman.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A spirit
- A demonic presence
- It is theorized that, like Mothman, the Black Bird served as an omen of doom, warning the workers of the lethal radiation within the plant.
