凤凰再现? Phoenix?



  前几天大人在 MSN 跟还在紐西兰过着背包族生涯的“为吃猫”聊天,她劈头第一句话就是,“我见到凤凰!”。大人直接的回应是,“幻觉”!

  “为吃猫”说当时她正以时速100公里在大道上奔驰,那“凤凰”就立在路中央,在她相当接近时才在她眼前沖天飞起!那只神奇的鸟虽然有着孔雀的炫蓝色头和身体,却有着白色大翼和四条白色而且(她特別强调)非常非常非常长的尾巴!可惜车速太快,她根本来不及停车拍照!大家(包括当地人)都堅信她见到的是孔雀,因为紐西兰跟本沒有這种长尾鸟!但她非常肯定那不是,不死心的她用了整晚在网上搜寻這只奇妙的鸟,却一无所获!

  大人跟据她的草图和说明画了這幅图,还真有点像凤凰哩!有沒有人见过类似的鸟呢?

  Over MSN, mom was talking to her niece Joyce who is still experiencing her backpacker life in New Zealand. Her first word to mom was "I saw a Phoenix!". Mom's immediate response is "Illusion"!

  Joyce said that the bird was standing in the middle of the road while she was driving at 100km/hr, and flew away immediately, thus not leaving her enough time to park her car aside to snap a picture.

  This amazing creature was described to have shining blue head and the body of peacock with white wings and four very very long white tail feathers! Nobody believed her, even the local people there. They insisted that she just saw a peacock since that type of long-tailed bird doesn't exist in their country! She searched the web for the entire night to see if this amazing bird exists, but failed to find one!

  Mom did this illustration based on her sketch and description. Anyone seen birds similar to this before?

Oooooh, that's a beautiful illustration of the phantom bird! I hope Julia and Joyce figure out the mystery soon. Or, hmmm, maybe it's better to keep it a mystery, more fun.

Thanks Bobo and your mom for the kind words, and it's great that you picked people I would have picked if my list could have been longer!

Team work!

Thanks Bobo!

We are so honored here at the Service. Our kitten deserves all the credit by providing the great ideas, the dog and I are just hanger-ons.
