This according to Indian Legend is a likeness of the”Piasa Bird", originally painted on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River at Alton, Illinois, the hometown of Sunny Radio Listener Dale Bregenzer this was originally depicted by the Indian tribe that inhabited the area & who put it on the bluff after slaying it with poison tipped arrows to stop it from swooping down & carrying off small children & small animals . The image was restored & maintained by the residents of Alton down through the years.

The original Indian painting by the Indians was fading, so Alton Residents restored it & have maintained it for many years. Google “Piasa Bird” for more info about this unique legend. Sunny Listener Dale Bregenzer
