The Vermillion Bird is one of the four Chinese constellation creatures. It represents the fire element in Toaism, the summer and the south. Its wings are the many shades of orange and read. It is a very eloquent bird and is very fussy in what it eats and where it decides to perch itself. The other three creatures of the Chinese constellations are White Tiger, Azure Dragon and Black Tortoise.
Also known as Suzaku in Japan, Jujak in Korea and Chu Turoc in Vietnam.
