These are birds from Chinese myth that illuminate with great heat and light. They were originally 10 birds that descended to earth one by one for each hour of the day to spread light and warm to the world. After their work, they would rest causing the night to fall. One day they miss-timed their arrival and all 10 descended at once. The heat became extremely intense, enough to burn the world in flames. However, the quick and skilled archer, I shot down the Birds one by one leaving only one bird left to light the day.
