When it vibrates its wings and rises straight, the wings are like clouds hanging in the sky. When on a voyage, this bird prepares to start for the southern ocean, the celestial lake and in the records of marvels we read that when the Peng flies southwards, the water is smitten for a space of three thousands of miles around, while the bird itself mounts upon a great wind to a height of ninety thousands of miles, for a flight of six month’s duration.
