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.
