I have heard that the Pheonix exists on the astral plane but no in the physical plane. But when I was younger I used to see a bird that I figure was a pheonix. It was about the size of a robin but it was orange stomuch and a golden yellow body, and short tail feathers like a regular Robins but they where orange at the tips. And a black beak and leg Color.
there is no birds like that in my state. So I have to suspect it was a pheonix. I saw it a couple of times though out my childhood but I never see it anymore. How can that be possible if pheonixs don't existing the physical plane?
