Susquehanna River Rock Art

More than 1,000 carved images (petroglyphs) of birds, animals, humans, the tracks they make, and more abstract designs have been documented on the rocks here. The sites on the Susquehanna are perhaps the largest concentration of rock art in the Northeast United States.

     The Thunderbird is a legendary creature of North American Indigenous peoples'. It is considered a supernatural being of power, strength, and protection.

     According to Algonquian culture, the Thunderbird is said to create thunder by flapping its wings, and lightning by flashing its eyes.
