Birds of a Feather . . .
Pterosaur? Never!
The problem with assuming that misidentified birds account for the
sightings of apparent pterosaurs in
the 48 contiguous states of America
is dead.
Many of the reports of feather-less flying creatures fail to be reasonably explained as birds or bats. American birdwatching may help, eventually, but the eyewitnesses remain silent. 
What  by Jonathan Whitcomb
What flies in the night
As it glows
Bigger than fireflies and bats
Who knows?
Bigger than barn owls
Dark as the crows
But never with feathers
Who knows?
Bird Explanation 
Some critics of living-pterosaur research give bird-misidentification as the explanation for sightings of creatures described as pterosaurs. The problem is that those critics ignore details; they generalize based on what they imagine a number of sightings entail.
But the eyewitness of a creature 30 feet long that flies over a road in daylight--that man is
not an eyewitness of a bird with a 15-foot long tail and wings with wrinkles instead of feathers.
Live Pterosaur
How can sightings of what eyewitnesses call "pterodactyls" actually be pterosaurs? Those Americans who report live "pterodactyls" are
not, in general, promulgating hoaxes. But the key to understanding pterosaur non-extinction
is not primarily in the sighting locations in New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and many other states; it is in the ropen expeditions in Papua New Guinea from 1994 until 2007. There it began.
