Bird – Dream Meaning and Symbolism


Dreaming of a bird means a positive sign. It can symbolize your career and the social side of your life. It represents all the freedom you crave in your life.

What Does It Mean To Dream Of A Bird?

A bird is an animal and, as described under the general symbol, encompasses something related to instinct and therefore something natural in us.

In dreams, birds are usually images of elements such as intuition (help from the unconscious), spirituality (birdies flying high), fantasy (which can be caged) or freedom (free as a bird). The meanings can be many, especially if we consider that there are so many species of birds. The condition of the bird in the dream can also be an indication of something very central.

One can see birds in dreams as a helping hand of the unconscious – a messenger who provides something that can help you in your situation, but that you have to pick up and accept, before “the little bird flies”, that is, before the chance is missed.

The birds can fly and are free from the normal limitations of the Earth, we have to accept. For this reason, dreams of birds – as well as dreams in which it is possible to fly – can be seen as an image of the ability to free oneself from the limitations we can feel. They can be external or even internal limitations. Dreams of birds can therefore also symbolize desires for freedom.

Since the bird is free from the common terrestrial limitations of humans, it is usually a symbol of fantasy. It can be loud (maybe you have some ideas you’re trying to do), or it can be very limited in your movement (the bird in the cage). Little birds can fly high and, in this image, dreams of birds can also involve their own effort for spirituality and brightness, perhaps a search for deeper meaning.

Little birds can, in some cases, symbolize something feminine: in men, their inner feminine qualities, and in women, their so-called self or their most intimate being.

Birdie in a dream alludes to good incidents, such as wealth, good fortune and increased livelihood. The person who sees a little bird in his dreams appreciates the development of his business and prosperity.

Dreaming Of Flying Bird

Flying birds mean prosperity and abundance. They can be a symbol of your career. They can also symbolize your social life. Sometimes this dream indicates that you are flying high. Maybe you have great goals and ambitions to achieve.

Dreaming Of A Bird In The Cage

If the birdie was in a cage, then you may feel like you’re stuck in something in search of a way out. If you see more than one bird in the cage, this may suggest happiness at home.

Dreaming Of A Singing Bird

If the birdie was singing, it could mean good news on the way, or a general feeling of joy and happiness at the moment.

Dreaming Of Bird In The Nest

Bird In The Nest

Dreaming of a bird’s nest full of eggs is a sign of success in meeting people. An empty nest suggests concern and pessimism in business. If in the nest you see abandoned puppies crying, it is a sign of concern for someone in your family.

Dreaming Of Colorful Bird

If your dream is about brightly colored birds, this represents female fertility or sexuality, and is a strong positive indicator for involvement in sexual activities. If your dream is about dark-colored birds, or birds of prey in flight, this indicates a negative energy cleansing.

Dreaming Of Dead Bird

The death of the bird in the dream does not point to the things that are good, it indicates sadness and anguish. If the bird dies at the hands of the dreamer, it is a bad sign. Sometimes this dream refers to difficulties and loss of money in your professional life.
