Mothman was the name given to a strange creature thought to have been sighted many times in the Point
Pleasant area of West Virginia , on the border with Ohio,  between November 1966 and November 1967. 
Some observers described the creature as a man-sized beast with wings and large reflective red eyes,
while others claimed that the creature possessed luminous eyes. A number of hypotheses have been put
forward to explain what people reported, ranging from paranormal  phenomena, to owls, to sandhill cranes, but no definitive explanation seems likely.

I'm kind of surprised that this the first post about Mothman here. I've heard the owl theory before, but it was more on the cryptozoological side. An owl that stands about three to four feet tall with a wingspan of eight to ten feet.

Some Theories suggest the Great Gray Owl was really responsible for the Mothman sightings.  While Great Gray Owls are not native that far south, it is not unheard of for birds to stray far from their territories.  The Great Gray Owl can be 3 feet tall with a 5 foot wingspan.  They are bigger than the native Great Horned Owl.
