The Rain Bird is a creature with origins in the mythology, legend and folklore of cultures all around the world.
The Rain Bird has a very deep connection to the nourishing and destructive powers of rain. As such, they are either drawn to locations where rain will soon arrive, or they are drawn to locations that are in desperate need of rain.
Rain Birds have been known to herald the arrival of the German (or in some cases, follow in its wake).
