* Just as phoenix is a homonyn meaning both the bird and palm tree in Greek, so the Egyptian word Benu means both the bird and the palm tree.
Thanks, Stephen ... that's really good

Do we have other traditional connections between other birds (especially dove, turtle dove, eagle) to other trees?

Daphne is connected to the laurel, she becomes this tree ... is the turtle dove connected to the laurel?
