Dead Bird Symbolism

By http://www.richardalois.com

In Asian cultures birds often symbolise immortality. In Indian myth birds represent departed souls and in Christian art birds often appear as saved souls. Some people say when you find a dead bird the meaning is someone you loved passed away.

Others say that dead birds actually are a good sign, showing you that an end to turmoil or pain is coming. A dead bird doesn’t necessarily portend physical death, but metaphorical death. Perhaps you’re going through the heartache of a break-up. Perhaps you are struggling to find a job. This dead bird marks the end to your search and struggle. A new beginning is just around the corner. More specifically, it symbolizes the end of something and the start of something else.

What does a dead bird you find symbolize?

If you’ve seen a dead bird in the road, or perhaps accidentally hit a bird, it may feel like a bad sign. Similar to the death tarot card, a dead bird is a symbol of a fresh start from an end and not simply an end. Overall and paradoxically, a dead bird symbolizes a new beginning. So no need to worry.

None of the mentioned happened (at least I did not notice) when I found this bird in my garden in Clapham, London.

    • Hi, a dead bird has many different meaning that can vary from person to person, an animal dead or dreaming of someone dead has different reasons to show up in our lives and isn’t always related to people we care dying or dead, I remember to dream often of missing an aeroplane and I thought I was missing the chance of a good job opportunity but in fact the meaning of it was that my renewed pessimism and anxiety was running the mindful job I did within myself, as soon I readjusted my mindset and within things restarted to fall into place, seeing a dead bird could be related to something else, I would say to try to figure out if there is something within you first that could relate to that dead bird

      • I was on a search for my grandmothers grave on my father’s side in a cemetary as well as my oldest brother of 13 siblings who was first born and died at 3 months old never found their markers but there was a wind storm for a few days prior and when I was about halfway into the graveyard I saw a raven squawking thought that’s kinda creepy a few more rows in I spotted 2 dead huge baby bird I’m guessing were her baby’s that sent shivers down my spine I think she was telling me they would never be found probably unmarked graves…….
