Desert Bird

Appears In: M4R, Uru, EoA

The term "Desert bird" always refers to Yeesha. It seems to have begun as a childhood nickname, since that is what Atrus calls her in a M4R Amulet Memory, but it also applies to the Watcher's prophecies, concerning the Grower.

The name reaches its highest level of importance in Uru, prior to which Catherine had a dream about a desert bird who would alter the course of the restoration of the D'ni cavern. Atrus, although not believing in prophecy, believed that this could be Yeesha, and it was. If you look closely at the shirt Yeesha wears, you see an image of a bird.

The Watcher also speaks of the Desert Bird as being The Grower in his book, Words.
