I should add it wasn’t a normal bird, it had very long legs and it was white on its head and had a few white spots. But the rest of it was grey. Also, its body and head were like a normal bird. Maybe even a little smaller. One more thing, I had three dreams that I could remember tonight. But this dream seems really important to me, and I don’t know why.

Not sure if it was trying to hurt me but it kept clinging to my back and flapping it’s wings all crazy-like.

  13. I had a dream that I was in my childhood bedroom and where my nightstand should be was a bird cage instead. Though I’ve never had a bird it seemed normal to me and I recognized this bird. I went to check on it and it appeared as though the cage hadn’t been taken care of in a very long time, but somehow the bird was alive and well. I began cleaning the cage and as I did so the bird escaped and started flying around the house. I continued to clean the cage while simultaneously trying to catch the bird. The bird flew out of my room and as I followed it I was somehow in my grandparents home and all my family was there (as if it were a holiday or birthday) they noticed me but didn’t really acknowledged the bird or the cage or me frantically trying to catch it… They didn’t really seem to care, they just made small talk with me while I ran around. Finally I caught the bird and it looks tired and it’s feathers were all ruffled. Then I woke up.

  14. I dreamt of black birds flying towards my sisters and I, so we run towards a building and hid. Then we begun praying, I suddenly woke up to the sound of birds perching on my roof… What does it mean please?

  18. I woke up to a dream of a raven trying to get inside my house through the window

    It felt threatening but didn’t look like it was aiming to kill me

    It started scratching the screen of my window because that was open, then I tried to shut it closed, because I expected it to tear

    Shortly after I maneuvered between the screen and glass window it saw its chance and tried to get inside, having its beak caught between both sections, and I would’ve thought it would fly away because of this but no, it started to open the window…

    Before my dream ended, I recollect taking a pillow to run and maybe push the bird out the window for the last time and then I woke up to the side of my bed

    Alas, here I am. Good morning everyone.

  19. Today I saw a new dark grey coloured bird sitting in the kitchen. It was sitting and may be newly born and there are white small insects in her feathers and lower body . Some body picked it and put it under water tap so that all that insect can be removed from the bird.

    I had a dream that a guy was holding a little pretty bird the had a broken wing and was able to fly again. He asked if i wanted to hold it and i said no because i was afraid to touch it. He then let the little bird fly off.

  22. I had a dream that there was an extremely large Raven sitting on a nest that was on/in the ground. The nest was full of eggs. Large bluish eggs…like duck eggs.
    I was in awe of this beautiful huge creature.
    I was out of direct sight of the nest talking to a friend that stopped by. I heard loud cawing and seen the Raven ever so slowly fly straight up. It almost seemed difficult for her. The cawing/screeching continued. My daughter came running from the direction of nest with tears streaming down her face. Yelling for me. I knew it had to do with the nest. I ran as fast as I could towards it and I saw my mom’s big white German Shepherd at the nest eating eggs. I was yelling and running at him. I grabbed him and dragged him to the house.
    Not all the eggs were destroyed but a lot were.

  23. The dream had a hawk and a bald eagle fighting. The eagle brought the hawk to the ground, did not kill it, did not injure it. People ran over to see the birds. The setting was a residential neighborhood, one I’ve never seen. The eagle took off then landed on my arm. It never attacked me or tried to hurt me. I felt fear as it landed but after it looked at me, I had a complete sense of calm. I just remember walking around with this massive bird perched on my arm.
