There is a bird in the mountains with the body of a crow, a white beak, red feet, and a floral pattern on its head. 

The sound it makes sounds like its own name, "Jing Wei."

Jing Wei is said to be the reincarnation of a girl that drowned while playing in the Eastern Sea. The story goes, every day Jing Wei can be seen taking stones and twigs from the Western Mountain in an effort to fill the Eastern Sea, so that no other children will drown in it.
