Thus dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general.

The Phoenix, sometimes called a fenix or firebird, is a majestic, glorious bird with purple and gold plumage.

They do not require food to sustain themselves, though they have been known to eat the gum of the frankincense tree.
