This one's not mine but my fiance's

We were driving by a crosswalk in the middle of November. We have the ones that make a chirping sound for the blind

Well, my fiance heard the chirping & said "even with all the snow on the ground, there's still birds out there chirping"
I couldn't help but tell him what that noise really was :)

When i was very little i saw a film called "I Heard The Owl Call My Name"...the film was about an old Red Indian custom......namely that if you hear an owl call your name it means you're going to die!! Well!!....naturally being very young I took it all in..especially as right outside my bedroom window was a big oak tree, complete with resident owl hooting away every night. I remember falling asleep to the sound of my little transistor radio every night for months instead of having the bravery of listening to that darned owl!!

This is actually a belief my sister had until a little after she turned 15. normally, she is a very smart person. we also have had birds as pets and tried to breed them. that's why her comment had me rolling on the floor crying, i was laughing so hard. in the most serious voice, she said, "But i thought birds mated through regurgitation!" I thought she was joking at first, but she truly believed it!

My mom was born in California and had never seen or heard a woodpecker. When she moved to the northeast and heard one for the first time, she asked my dad where there was construction going on so close to our house.

...he corrected her.

I used to believe that my mother could talk to the birds. She would always tell me that a 'little birdie' told her that I did something.

Whenever we would be playing outside or somewhere semi-unsupervised, she would tell us to remember that the birds don't lie. talk about paranoid!

I use to believe that the Schwan's food truck carried swans... not food. So whenever it came to my house, I got really excited and thought we were getting a new pet. But that never happened...

A VERY long time ago, I decided to do a fun little project. i believed that if chickens could sit on eggs for a long time and make them hatch, maybe I could do the same. I took an egg out of the fridge and put it in a basket. Then after i did so, i sat on the egg. after what seemed like a long time, i got up to see if it was beginning to hatch, then sat down again... maybe a little too hard. oops!
imagine my moms shock when she saw the yoke on my good pants... ;-)

I used to believe that budgies lived for hundreds of years, as I was told the one in the house was the same as my greatgrandmother had had. If it died, they just bought one exactly the same, and gave it the same name!

When I was a kid, I thought sparrows turned into bats at night which I thought explained why there aren't daytime bats nor nighttime sparrows.

I used to think that birds were deaf - as you can't see their ears (because they're concealed by feathers).

Also, somebody once told me that if you feed a pigeon lemonade, it will explode!!!
