1_1    tripedal crow
The three-legged / tripedal crow
( 三足乌 / 三足烏 / sān zú wū)
is a creature found in various mythologies and arts of East Asia. It is believed by East Asian cultures to inhabit and represent the Sun
[earliest bird-Sun motif / totemic articles excavated around 5000 B.C. / lower Yangtze River delta area.]

According to folklore, there were originally ten sun crows which settled in 10 separate suns. They perched on a red mulberry tree, the 扶桑 / fúsāng.

Each day one of the sun crows would be rostered to travel around the world on a carriage, driven by Xihe the 'mother' of the suns.
As soon as one sun crow returned, another one would set forth in its journey crossing the sky.

Folklore also held that, at around 2170 BC, all ten sun crows came out on the same day, causing the world to burn;
Houyi the celestial archer saved the day by shooting down all but one of the sun crows.
1_2  tripedal crow
The bird with three legs / tripedal, is a mythical creature that turns up in many traditional legends from Central Asia, East Asia, Egypt and North Africa. In Japan: Yatagarasu

The origin of Yatagarasu is widely attributed to the Chinese myth of ten crows perched on a mulberry-tree, recounted as follows.

In Chinese mythology,
Xīhe is a Chinese sun goddess and the wife of Emperor Jun.
According to legend, she was once the ‘mother’ of ten ‘child-suns’. The child-suns slept in the lower branches of the tree.
Every morning Xihe bathed one of her children in the river and then let him/her fly on the back a crow to the top of the mulberry tree.
Then the child-sun would fly up into the sky, and be the sun for the day.
Each of the child-suns took turns doing this so that there would be light everyday.
Everyday, one of the ten sun birds would travel around the world on a carriage driven by Xihe. (Some interpretations are that the nine suns reside in the Underworld and the tenth in the world of the living above.)

Folklore also held that, at around 2,170 BCE, all ten sun-birds emerged and ascended the sky on the same day, causing the world to scorch and the Earth to drought.
The emperor Yao asked Di Jun, the father of the ten suns, to persuade his children to appear one at a time. But since would not listen Di Jun sent the archer Houyi (or Yi) who saved the day by shooting down all but one of the suns (which escaped because it happened to be traveling the Underworld at the time).
The three-legged crow is said to be residing inside of the last sun today.
