Most were brown or grey but there was one that had a slightly different colour and I was wondering why my friend did not dance with that bird. This was a banquet hall setting. It was beautiful to watch. I assumed I was watching a video of the event. I told myself that I wanted to go dance with the birds . Everyone looked happy dancing with a bird on their head .

  15. Hi, so I dreamed about a little white bird with small black spots on the feathers. In my dream I went in my grand parents house. there on the TV I saw something small gray and moving. As I aproach it I noticed it was a small bird, grey to white (dirty) with black small spot and in ruffled state. As I got closer to to it, I said “don’t worry I will not gonna hurt you.” . Then slowly the bird aproached my hand then it got into my hand. As I started to carress it, it started to get cleaner and healthier (white with small black spots usually at the tip of the feather). After that I went trough the house asking if somebody have seen some tweezers wich I can use to feed the bird. Every one looked and me and said nothig, Meanwhile the bird keept playing with my hand and I keept carressing it, each time noticing she gets stronger and whiter ,rubbing against my hand ( like a dog when it wants to be carress more, with more force, a big force compared to her size). The dream ended with my grandmother telling me what kind of bird it was.

  16. I dreamt while on my way to church I found a bird of prey trapped by its wing feathers in a hedge, it looked like an owl or sparrow hawk, I wasn’t sure as it was in distress. As I released it it screamed in pain and it was very weak, I then lifted it to a pool of water to let it drink a little water. I held it gently and placed it inside my jacket.
    I went on my way into the church and left it on a pew inside my jacket.
    Moments later a group of women were trying to remove the now flying bird away, one middle aged blonde woman wanted it and was trying to coax it with food. She had a bird with no feathers and wanted this one.
    I raised my hand and the bird flew onto my fist and gripped my fingers tightly with its claws and sqauaked at the woman to clear off.
    I noticed one of its wing feathers was loose where it had been trapped. I looked again and saw that it was an owl

  17. What about saving a bird from drowning? In my dream two small cages fell into a pool. At first I couldn’t find them, but I finally found one. The bird seemed to have held its breath but was still effected by being under water. I opened the cage and it flew out, but I caught it. I dried it and got the feathers looking fluffy again.

  18. I had a dream that a bird had fallen asleep and fell off his branch and I caught it. As it awoke, I comforted it by saying, “It’s okay, I’m here, I got you” or something like that. And, I rubbed its feathers to comfort him. I then wanted to go to the nearby store to buy it a ‘bed’ or a big enough pillow. It was full of color, but i feel like it changed. Either, red, yellow or blue. Was a nice dream.

  20. My dream was a big white bird landed on my shoulder while my deceased grandmother just standing right next to me with a broom. We were both outside of our church. I was afraid in my dream and actually grabbed the feet of the bird and throw the bird away. I felt that the birds’ feet were cold and it feels really weird as if it was a worm on my shoulder/back. When I woke up I actually took off my shirt and tried to find if there was something on my shoulder.

  22. I dreamt that a freak storm had hit, and there was a mated pair of birds that nested outside my window, the storm continued to worsen, so I opened the window and reached out to the nest to bring them into the house for safety to wait out the storm. As I did I nearly got struck by lightning, pulled back then reached out again, the first bird, the male, happily hopped up on my hand, and I brought him in, the 2nd bird, the female, was hesitant, though she did not lash out. I woke up from the dream after I got them to safety.

  23. I dreamed there were two birds that got stuck in my house, in my bedroom. I caught one, it fit in my hands easily, it looked like a sparrow. The other was smaller, I thought it might be the baby to the one in my hands. I walked towards the door to let the bigger one out, hoping the smaller one would follow. It did, but before I got to the door, the bigger one got free from my hands and they were flying in the kitchen. I then woke up.

  24. I dreamt of a bat. I was calling it out because earlier in the same dream on a picture a friend saw e clone of myself. And in this part of my dream I was calling out the clone in anger. I saw the bat appear on a branch of a tree at my fathers house. I tell it to come to me. I was angry and slapped the bat when it was flying towards me. It quickly turned into a bird then a bat again. I called it out again and gave it another slap while flying towards me and ended up like a very cute small light grey bird. I took the bird that was standing on the floor and looking at me and placed it on the palm of my hands. I was content and walk towards the backyard.
