Terms searched: "Mesoamerican rain bird", "Rain bird", "Pájaro de lluvia" (this obtained a poem and a song, a page talking about raining animals and other strange objects, a book...), and read the wiki pages about the rain bird and american mythology and the Spanish version on "Dragon" (Found a book, Spanish, by Yólotl González Torres, "Animales y Plantas en la Cosmovisión mesoamericana", reading it for more notes, but the question is faster =X I hope...).
The terms in English led me to a page of Hopi ceramic modeling the North American version of the Rain Bird, and pages depictiong "Science Fiction Fantasy = Fantasy Creatures", Fantasy Kryptozoology (have the same list...), but for some reason I have found nothing in the existence of a Rain Bird version for Mesoamerica.
Now, my question is:
I already know that in Mesoamerica the Serpent was the symbol related to water, but I wonder if in Mesoamerica existed a bird version related to water and the rain, like in North American groups, or if it's just the serpent (Mixcóatl, Ehécatl, Kukulcán, Quetzalcóatl, etc.).
I want to make sure to use a correct animal for a thing I have in mind =P For the moment, I've been using a Quetzal as a symbol, but this does not ring in my head nor in my searches =P It's a small detail, because it's for a kind of seal that I want to have the figure of the animal related to rain, but I want to be sure on what to put.
And being here... good books related to Mesoamerican cosmovision based on animal symbolism? Until the moment, I have 3 books (again, in Spanish, by Mercedes de la Garza "El universo sagrado de la serpiente entre los mayas", by María del Carmen Valverde Valdés, "Balam : el jaguar a través de los tiempos y los espacios del universo maya", and finally, by Guilhem Olivier, "Tezcatlipoca : burlas y matamorfosis de un dios azteca")
Okay... not really sure how to tag this...
In the end... I'm thinking about just changing it into a serpent... But now I'm really curious to just change it without asking first XD
