  1. My dream goes like this! ” I was entering my big sist’s bedroom from the back door and when i entered,its either i shut the door or the door was shut on it own or the door was opened. When I took about 2 to 4 steps from the door,I heard a sound of a bird,immendiately i located where the bird was…@the window blind top,close to the bed.. I climb the bed to get hold of the bird,when I catched the bird I discovered that the bird’s wings was wrapped with a piece of clothe and I finally held the bird in my hand and came from the bed” waking up singing with so much Joy and hope…I had this dream in the afternoon 3:20 pm… Pls whats the meaning of this dream?

  2. I had a dream that birds were killing each other outside my house and the injured ones were trying to come in my house, their feathers were all dirty and bloody and was leaving all marks in my hallway, it was awful, and I was pushing them out of the house! What does this mean, I’m afraid something awful might happen

  3. I dreamt that I opened a door to an upstairs closed-in porch and there were several wild birds that had gotten in through a screen and were trying to get out. Some birds got out through the door before I could close it again. They were brown in color, some small and some medium size. They had destroyed the porch blinds and screens trying to get out. Then when I went downstairs there were several more birds flying around. I told my adult son he needed to help me get them outside. I caught two with a towel and set them free outside. When I came back in to get more, there was one lone beautifully colored bird (bright blue, yellow, orange and pink) perched on a beam in the kitchen. There were still some other brown ones too and all of a sudden I noticed a squirrel on the floor of the kitchen. My son and I kept trying to catch and release this wildlife back to the outdoors. How ever my brother refused to help. This is one of the craziest dreams I’ve had in a while. I am divorced so does this mean something good finally?

  4. Dreamt a big big bird like the size of human touched down. A white, large beaked bird. & It came & sat with me. Then it transformed to this very beautiful young woman, the most beautiful I have ever seen. We liked each other immediately. Next she flew into my bedroom where my husband was sleeping on d floor & I was on the bed. Somehow we both agreed she will pass the night & she choose to sleep on the floor, her legs over my husband’s legs. I covered both of them shielding them from the cold

  5. I had a dream about two people I used to know found and rescued a rare bird family. They had light black feathers with a blueish luster and were bathing and was very happy. Then I woke up and was happy and hopeful myself.

  6. I have had the same dream at least twice that I am looking out the window, I think I’m in my office (I work at a cemetery if that’s significant) and as I’m bending down to pet my dog or maybe to pick something up, I see a hummingbird fly towards an empty feeder. It pauses and flies away. Both times I feel regret like I had meant to bring food for them and kept forgetting. Then I say “I’ll bring you food tomorrow little bird.” And that’s it. There isn’t a hummingbird feeder at my office by the way. I see all the interpretations about feeding birds but nothing about an empty bird feeder. Any ideas? I wouldn’t have thought of it as anything significant but since it’s happened at least two times that I recall, I’m curious.

    • I woke upin the night, saw a bird about a good foot in size “sailing”from my rt to left in front of my tv armoire. I called it a bluebird, his left wing was grey brown, top part of body was blue.Moving acrossfrom my rt to left toward a large window, wing not moving, just sort of gliding, and HIS left eye was looking at me…and it was like sort of shiny yellow gold. This was like a open vision, for I was awake, and it was so real I wondered how it got in. Please give me your thoughts.

  7. In my dream i was in my room and i was friends with 6 small and beautiful birds….they were so cute and sweet they used to come to me and kiss me and fly they were so happy and cute, they used to come and go whenever they wanted, and i saw a owl with two heads and a nest of owl’s babies…what does this mean

  8. In my dream, there came three birds beside my window, two was white and one was yellow but the other white was so beautiful and one of a kind, the three birds were so friendly and peaceful, then one moment they were gone only to find them caged, i was looking for a way to free them and it started raining then i woke up.

  9. I dreamt I went to my exes house but he wasn’t in I walked around the house feeling anxious. I found a grey young swan all fluffy but without its mother so I picked it up as it was far from water I carried it around and while big and clumsy it wasn’t heavy. I took it to my car to bring home to care for. There were other elements on the dream regarding my ex but this grey swan seemed so significant I woke anxious but the thought of the swan made me calm

    • I reach an extended finger up to a bird, not exotic but not dull in color. The bird is singing. It’s Inside, not outside, maybe on a fireplace mantle? The bird accepts my extended finger and sits on it. I walk off with the bird on my finger. Then, I’m suddenly holding the hand of a much younger man. Pretty vivid dream. Thoughts on meaning appreciated

  10. I had a dream I was in a garden during the morning, I found chicks who just hatched, no feathers, and hungry. I had them on my hand and I gave them food but one of the birds ate all of it and left the other bird to die and left. I then fed the other bird and revived it. I would love to know what this means.

  11. Trinity Secunda on

    I dreamt of walking in a field of flowers with my grandmother. We passed a bush, and on it were yellow breasted birds. I carefully reached out and caught one, but was afraid to grab it too tight. It fell from my hands down a dark crack in the ground. I went in after it, and found a pipe with clear water flowing from it, and a nest with baby ducks and the mother under it. Behind them, the bird I caught sat. I apologized and held it again, and it seemed happy and allowed me to preen it. I pet the ducklings as well, and I believe I woke after this. It felt important, and I had another strange dream along with it after.

    • I had a dream I was fishing but instead of fish I was catching a white birds. can anyone explain this

  12. I dreamed I had birds sitting on my extended arms. I cry and call out my mother’s name, who passed away in 2018. Every time I open my mouth to call her name the birds put their beaks in my mouth.
    I’d be curious to know what it means. I remember being very sad in my dream and don’t remember the birds as being colourful. Darker colours and it was also more autumn or winter season.
    Thanks in advance for your reply.

  13. Last night I had a dream that I had caught a beautiful purple green and white fantail. It perched on my hand and I carried it everywhere with me. I went to a gathering with many people and lost the bird and became distressed but found it again and felt relieved. I believe I felt somewhat attached to this bird and woke up feeling happy and full of love.

  14. I have had dream twice about this little brown birds and this time they were so many where I was I when I saw them I was amazed and I caught one in my hand and the others were still around and later I let go of the one that was in my hand.

  15. Fermina Quamruzzaman on

    I dreamed a white bird it’s a white parrot then someone will catch it and put in a box…. What does it means? Thank you and God bless….

    • I had a dream about two people I used to know found and rescued a rare bird family. They had light black feathers with a blueish luster and were bathing and was very happy. Then I woke up and was happy and hopeful myself. I try to figure out what it means. There is more to the story but I feel it gets to personal and lenghty if I tell all the detail, but there is sorrow and hope in them.

  16. Last night I dreamt there was a very small bluebird with another smaller bird on its back was flying around in my living room. I was trying to catch it but couldn’t. It was as small as a spider and I kept looking all over for it. It would fly around and then hide. I never did catch it.

  17. Lisa Gelineau on

    I dreamt of a feather less bird who was unable to fly. It seemed as though the bird was frail and sad.

  18. Laurel hope on

    I dream I was sleeping and a big black bird was flying with some other birds and got stray away and fly through my window an ended up under my arm like he was hiding and I was scared to remove it so I asked my mom to take it out.

    • I had a dream about an colorful bird which it’s wing broke off right in front of me. The bird had rainbow coloured wings but only on the inside of them, the outside was a darker colour, dark shinny blue I believe.
      So I’m quite confused now.. multiple meanings, but no answers.
