A small wading bird
In Japanese folklore some animals are selected to symbolize longevity. The crane, for instance, is said to live 1000 years. The plover however, is said to live up to 1000 generations! Since they have strong wings and are often depicted flying over waves or Mt. Fuji, they are a symbol of strength and perseverance.
