  13. Just woke up. It’s 1:09am. CONTEXT: We have very large black vultures that surround the Catholic Church and they are many in numbers this time of year. Earlier this evening my mother and I went to where the birds congregate and it was beautiful and amazing (this happened in REAL LIFE).
    My DREAM: These vultures were carrying black ducks upon their backs and settled on the roof outside of my window. As I opened it, the vultures began to speak salutations as the mallards disembarked their flighty friends. The mallards did not speak but seemed to be tired and there was a sense of past distress. Almost as if the vultures assisted them in fleeing a danger they didn’t speak of. Every creature approached lovingly and I was able to say hello and pet and cuddle them. I was filled with such wonderment and absolute love. I did notice on the backs of the mallards an irredecent blue hue to their feathers that was mesmerizingly beautiful. I’m still awash with great love and awe. I LOVE dreams such as these.

  14. Had a dream of a sick looking black bird landed on my finger (thumb )and wouldn’t let go I try to pry it off but i jump out of the dream…so scary…

  15. Andrea Myres on

    I last night had a dream of yellow bellied Blackbirds that had come in multiple flocks to my area. They were migrating, and only did so in this area once every several years.
    I was being led by the hand to a popular restaurant that had a pool in the courtyard, and many of the birds came to bathe, day or night.
    I pulled away from my date to try to rescue a female bird who was dying, but she just GROWLED at Me! I kept trying over and over, and even when I walked away, the rest of my dream was consumed with the one beautiful bird.

  16. had a dream about a blackbird it was bigger than a crow or raven it flew past me and landed on a table then it hopped down on to the floor and I interacted with it by pushing one of my sons car toys to it and it pushed it back to me, its feet where very large, but I wasn’t anxious or afraid of it, I felt joy from it.

  17. Husain Foster on

    So this dream takes places in a parking lot in a local city shopping plaza me and my brother leaving out I felt as something was blocking the sun so I look up in the sky and there it was a black huge bird that could cover half the sun I got scared and start to run and my brother dissaper from the dream as i run the bird picks me up and fly to the sky.

  18. The last couple nights shortly after falling asleep I have experienced short dreams with flocks of blackbirds flying in front of my view. I awoke quickly scared and anxious, confused as to what they meant. Today at work I signed a letter of resignation as I have recently accepted a job closer to home. Maybe these birds do symbolize change in my life. Switching jobs is a big change for me and I have been kind of anxious about it. If you are experiencing dreams with flocks of blackbirds too maybe you are experiencing change in your life. Don’t worry and accept the changes with a positive outlook.

  19. Hi, I see blackbirds a lot. But last night I dreamt of a really large black bird/ entity that was bigger than a human. When it flapped it’s wings they were fluid and curvy in motion. I was pointing at it and shouting ‘Look!! You’re all missing it!’ It was so blatant and obvious to me but it seemed no one else was interested in looking that way. I’ve has similar dreams with fictional black creatures.
