Burning Day


The day on which a phoenix bursts into flames, and is reborn from the ashes (CS12).newborn_fawkes_by_nasubionna-d7pkuid

When Harry saw Fawkes the phoenix on a Burning Day, his eyes were "dull" and he seemed ill, resembling a "half-plucked turkey" with tail feathers falling out. Also, the large bird was making a gagging sound that made Harry think he was dying. Just then he burst into flames resembling a "fireball."  A few minutes later, an ugly baby phoenix was reborn from the ashes.
