Winter passed and lost it’s hold on the land. The north winds grew weaker. The birds of the air had finished their sojourn in the south and would be returning to the land. With their return would come the storms and the rain to feed new growths. Every year the giant birds returned to the north to build their nests in high places and bring their young into the world, held aloft for the long flight on the large thermal updrafts. First, the sound of wind, then a dark shadow crossed over the land. The giant Bird of Thunder, with wingspans over 20 feet, swooped down across the edge of the herd and a young buffalo calf was lifted into the air. Lightning streaked across the sky while the voice of the Thunders spoke. It was as it should be, the herd had grown too large and Mother Earth had needed rain.

But now, as the Thunderbirds moved over the plains they found the herds of buffalo that once spanned to the horizon, were not as they once were. Without the buffalo, there was not enough food for these giant birds and many died on their journey north. The loss of the mighty herds made migration very difficult and many of the young birds died on the way back to South America that fall. Soon they and the buffalo were no more.
