    I've been able to find only a little information on the mythical creature Simurgh:

    Simurgh
    Simurgh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Phoenix Flight

    I am wondering if anyone has some more knowledge of this besides what can be found readily on the web. Anyone know some books about this or other Persian legends?

    Thanks,
    P.

    Thanks, Seattlegal. I also recently came across a book entitled The Conference of the Birds written by one Farid-Un Attar in the 12th century.
