challenge part 3

Hello again, we are back and merry Christmas (or Hanukkah)! I am so sorry for the 4 day delay. This puzzle should be on the 24th, but that was that on Christmas and I was wrapped up in presents, tired from Christmas cards, and exhausted from to much pie.

But also, let's give a congrats to Novacula! The winner of the second puzzle! He (or she) now will be put on the logicians hall!

Today's puzzle is a good one thats reasonable. and I'm not going to give away the answer so easy. So enjoy and REALLY THINK!

A bird watcher looks out a small, glass window and see a very rare bird. As he watches, he is happy. The man then realizes something and few seconds later, is very horrified! A few minutes after that, he is scared out of his mind, screaming for his life. What is going on?

A guess: He was happy watching the bird until he realised he was seeing a reflection in the glass window. Eventually the bird comes after him and the window is too small for him to escape through.

good guess

Great guess JoyKig, but I'm afraid that's not it. But it is a pretty convincing answer. I am, though, going to give 1 hint because there are a lot of possible answers, but I am looking for one. The hint is that the window is a regular window and the lives of others were in danger.

The man is on a ship. The bird is a rare sea bird sitting on the water. As the distance between the window and the bird decreases, he realizes the ship is sinking.

nope!

Nope, but a closer, but farther answer! I will give another hint: SOMETHING HAPPENED TO THE BIRD!

A lion or some other big cat was going to attack the very rare bird. Then man was frightened for his life because the lion was coming after him.

good try

I like how you think, pinkgirl25. But, unfortunately, that is incorrect. I want to give tip: focus on the time he was horrified, then when he was screaming. There is a chain event that happen there. so think, what could happen to the bird, that can also kill not just 1, but about 40 others?

Now for the clue: THE BIRD WAS KILLED IN FLIGHT.

After reading all of the clues-

The rare bird is actually a passenger plane. Maybe?

to otterb

Nope! But you are getting closer. One last hint: the bird is a bird and the man was going from America to Africa.

He is in a plane and it is crashing, (clearly descending or he wouldn't see a bird), but then realises they are not landing.
