The firebird is a magical bird from Slavic mythology that is said to be made of fire. This bird has brilliant plumage consisting of yellows, oranges, and reds. It's coloring is so bright that it can appear to glow, and can set off sparks in the night sky. It is said that one can illuminate a dark room with a single firebird tail feather. The firebird is elusive and not particularly friendly, and very few have been lucky enough to spot one. Many have tried to capture the firebird, but few have succeeded.
