Now, if we think Mauritius is a paradise, then the famous flying visitor I talk of must have thought it was truly Nirvana.  Their favourite food, fruits and nuts, were freely available on the ground, and with no predators on the islands there was no more need for wings. You guessed it. The Dodo.

With many mythical beasts there’s usually a grain of truth to be found if you search hard enough, that links the human fantasy to tangible naturalistic happenings, (of which the human spectators at the time probably couldn’t quite fathom), and the Pheonix is no exception. If Superman’s passive alter-ego is Clark Kent, then the Phoenix’s alter-ego is… the flamingo!??

At the dawn of the 20th century milk was delivered to British doorstops in open bottles. Two birds learnt how to siphon the cream at the top - the blue tit and the robin. After WW1 dairies began sealing their bottles with aluminum foil. But by 1950 the entire British blue tit population had learnt how to pierce the bottle tops and get the cream, whereas the robins never did!
