Backyard Birding

does it mean death when a bird comes in or hits the window? YES?


Category: Bird Emergency


in 1993 a bird flew up and hit my bedroom window and the next day my mom died. In 1997 at my sisters house a bird slammed into the picture window and the next day my grandma died, 2 weeks later another bird came into my sisters patio area slamming into her glass windows, she shooed him out with a broom. Oct, 15th 1997 she died. Today October 2nd 2006 a bird flew into my x husbands house and it slammed into alot of windows and finally he got it out the bathroom window while he was on the phone with me I am scared to death right now!!!

    I had a bird in my house once, years ago, and no one died.

    Don’t freak out too badly, okay.

    Probably for the bird.

    I don’t think he’s dying anytime soon. True, those occurances were scary but I think they were coincidences. ^_^

    According to the old wives tale this is what happens. It seems pretty coincidental that this has happened so often in your life and am sorry for your losses but still believe it is merely coincidence.

    I can see that the events you describe must make you feel a little scared – but they are coincidences. Nothing more.

    I have a sunroom and several birds have committed unintentional suicide against the windows (even though I have predator bird silhouettes on the glass), but nothing has died in my house so far – not even the sunroom plants .

    It is a tragic tale you relate, but please be assured that it is merely an unfortunate and very rare coincidence, and that your family members would have died anyway, irrespective of the bird incidents.

    Regarding your ex husband…. he rescued the bird that entered his home, so if anything his action should ensure his safety.

    Try not to worry.

    That’s just superstition. I guess it could mean death for the bird though. People die all the time so it’s easy to associate it with the bird thing. We have a glass ‘Florida rm’ on our house. Birds fly into the windows frequently. I don’t know of anyone who died but, I’m sure someone did. Put your fears to rest and worry about something real, like terrorism.

    If that were true my whole family would be dead. We live in a house with lots of floor-to-ceiling windows. We have birds pranging into them almost on a daily basis.

    well I’m African American and have heard these folks tales all my life from grandfather and grandmother . now I’m not so sure how true this is but like to believe that it’s just tales from what our elders believe in way back in the day . but i still keep true to the old way on some thing that they talk me so i wouldn’t bet against my grandmother.lol
