The Crane for Harmony - Next to the phoenix, the Crane is the most favored of all the bird symbols of good fortune. It is the bird of Immortality and it is strongly identified with the attributes of Longevity, happiness and the smoothness of flight. The crane's symbolic presence in the home or garden is believed to bring harmony and happinesses.
