Hmm...

As best I can tell, he's a roofer, not a birdwatcher. He saw something big with wings and a nest, and the only entry in his mental database for that was "raptor" -- which he probably just got from a nature program about eagles or peregrines. I don't think he realizes they are actually gargoyles.

Most people see what they expect to see, and if they see something different, are more inclined to believe themselves mistaken than accept that reality just did something bizarre.
