When I was little I thought seagulls were called seagles. Like a portmanteau of 'sea' and 'eagle'.
When I was little, I thought the singular form of geese was "gee"
I used to believe that a swan was a made-up animal for the ballet "Swan Lake". I didn't know a swan was a real animal until i was in 4th grade
I used to believe that clay pigeons were pigeon-shaped clay figures.
I used to believe that crows and ravens were the same species; crows were males and ravens were females. This belief is because Raven is a girls' name and Crow sounds more like a boys' name
I used to believe that a pigeon was a type of pig
I used to think that teachers were all nice.
I used to believe that albatrosses were a fictional species created for the Disney movie "The Rescuers"
I used to believe that birds couldn't fly in the rain because I had watched a cartoon with fairies and mischievous where fairies couldn't fly because they had wet wings. For me this law applied to birds too. One day, I saw a bird fly when storm and I said to myself "What? But how does he do to fly in the rain?". And it's the way that I understood.
I used to think that all birds flew until I saw a series in which they explained which are the species of birds that are not flying.
My dad thought robin feet were made out of wood because they look like twigs.
When I was 7 years old, I used to believe that chicks were born from their mother's womb.
I used to believe nugget-laying chickens existed. Unlike chicken breast and chicken leg a nugget doesn’t actually look like a body part so I never realized what it really was
I used to think that when a baby bird was old enough to fly out of the nest and live away from the mother bird, it would sometimes go back to back to visit her in the same tree, like when we humans stay in touch with our relatives!
I believed that chickens pooped eggs (male and female)
There was a short period of time where I thought that doves were just fictional creatures from the bible. I had no idea they actually existed
I used to really think that a ferret was a type of parrot because their names rhyme.
When I was eight, I thought my dad could translate what the birds were saying. I have no idea why.
I used to believe that if I left my window open at night, the next day, the birds would come
as in the cartoon Cinderella
When I was 2 years old I used to pout when I didn't get my way, and my lower lip would stick out. My mom told me that a birdie was going to potty on my lip if I didn't stop pouting (we happened to be outside at that moment). I remember being on the lookout for that bird, and bracing myself for the impending bombardment, because I sure as heck wasn't going to stop pouting!
