The mythical phoenix bird has captured our imagination from ancient times. It is the most beautiful bird in the world, it brings good fortune, and it lives forever, recreating itself when it's body gets old - what more could you want.
The phoenix has featured in mythologies of cultures around the world from ancient times until now. Its most recent appearance is in the "Harry Potter" series, where the phoenix "Fawkes" is heroic in saving Harry's life. It's a good thing to know a phoenix!
