Thunderbird

Power, Vitality, Innovation and Optimism
According the native legends, The Thunderbird is The Helper of man, the Great Eagle of all the native community, known as the supreme conqueror of the skies. Thunderbird is the largest and most powerful totem of native people.

He has horns, his wingbeats are said to produce thunder, while lightning flashes from his beak.  When the great bird is in battle, there is thunder and lightning in the skies.

To the West Coast people this great bird is the most powerful of all the Spirits - the personification of "Chief".
