Bird Tales
Truth or Fiction?

"Scarce as hen's teeth" Impossile to find                 

"He eats like a bird!"   That person doesn't eat hardly anything.  Some birds eats twicetheir body weight each day.

"She's  a bird brain"  She is not very smart .  See the study being done with Alex.  

"He will cover you with His feathers." God will protect and comfort youPsalm94:1

"A bird in hand is worth two in the bush"  It is better to have something than nothing.

"Kill two birds with one stone" ( Horrible saying!) Do more than one thing at a time.

"If you put salt on a bird's tail you can catch him"  If you can get that  close you won't need the salt, just reach out and pick up the bird.

"That's like water off a duck's back"  Doing that would be very easy.

"Work like a crow"  Work together.   Crows often work together as a team.  A few of thecrows in the flock will fly in front for distraction while the other crows on theteam fly up from behind and tease the enemy.  Thus a crow uses teamwork to defend  himself andor  the rest of his flock.   A crow also can learn how to talk.  He can learn sentences just likea parrot can do.  Working as a team and associating language with meaning both show howintelligent the crow and the rest of the bird kingdom is.

                     Beware of the Parrot                          This postman is working on a new beat. He comes to a garden gate marked BEWARE OF THE PARROT! He looks down the garden and, sure enough, there's a parrot sitting on its perch. He has a little chuckle to himself at the sign and the parrot there on it's perch. He opens the gate and walks into the garden. He gets as far as the parrot's perch, when suddenly, it calls out: "REX, ATTACK!"


"An article in National Geographic several years ago provided a
penetrating picture of God's wings...
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers
began their trek up a mountain to assess the
inferno's damage. One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes,
statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by
the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he struck
it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings.
The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried
her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her
wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She
could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies.
When the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body,
the mother had remained steadfast. Because she had been willing to
die, those under the cover of her wings would live."

"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will
find refuge" (Psalm 91:4)
