Alex:

In Greek mythology, a phoenix (/ˈfiːnɪks/; Ancient Greek: φοῖνιξ, phoînix) is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again.

Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again.[1] There are different traditions concerning the lifespan of the phoenix, but by most accounts the phoenix lived for 500 years before rebirth.[2] Herodotus, Lucan, Pliny the Elder, Pope Clement I, Lactantius, Ovid, and Isidore of Seville are among those who have contributed to the retelling and transmission of the phoenix motif.

In the historical record, the phoenix "could symbolize renewal in general as well as the sun, time, the Empire, metempsychosis, consecration, resurrection, life in the heavenly Paradise, Christ, Mary, virginity, the exceptional man, and certain aspects of Christian life".[3]

The Phoenix is just a mystical creature.
I do see red tail hawks and they are supreme in their domain here in Kentucky.
Their talons are quite impressive.
I saw one on the picnic table in the back yard just a few days ago.
They will shred a dove, rabbit or squirrel in a few seconds.
I respect them and let them do their will.
They are raptors in my opinion.
The supreme killer. Fast, efficient and very effective.

They're neat birds.  Red-Tail are big, but when we lived on the East Coast a Red-Tail killed our full-grown peacock.  About four times it's weight.  The hawk took one swipe at it and when the peacock ran instead of turning to fight the hawk finished it off.  I've heard they will take out a cat but have never been fortunate enough to see it.

the hawks are very cool,,,,Virginia stocked them to kill the doves at the airport here Smiley but some things around here they just appear over night Huh? The gold fish was the funniest,,,,pods of 15 or 20 4in long in different places,,,the blue herons got them all in 4days Cheesy Grin

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

The Canada population migrates south and overlaps with the permanent southern population this time of year.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.
