Feng Huang

Feng Huang | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

Feng and huang are supernatural Chinese birds that reign over all other birds.

 

The males are called Feng and the females Huang.

 

In modern times, however, such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and the Feng and Huang are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragon, which has male connotations.

 

The Fenghuang is also called the "August Rooster" since it sometimes takes the place of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac.

 

In the West, it is commonly referred to as the Chinese Phoenix.
