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.
