I used to believe that the eggs were actual baby chickens. Daddy used to scare me and told me that they were murdering baby chickens. I always wondered how cause of the egg but to this day i twitch when I crack an egg afraid a baby chick will fall out. I even had a nightmare once about it. I'm 18 now and still worried about it.

I once heard somewhere a statistic about ducks flying into airplanes. Somehow I got it in my head that ducks could fly faster than airplanes. I used to ride in the plane and look out the window for ducks to flap on by. I was always amazed at how fast they were. In 10th grade, I said it out loud to someone for the first time, and realized how silly it was!

When I was little, I remember being told that birds fly south for the winter. Up until about 3rd grade I thought they flew ALL THE WAY south- to Antarctica. I wondered why they've leave Indiana in the fall to go somewhere even colder.

When I was around 6 or 7, my Grandmother told me that a friend of hers had been stung by a hummingbird and almost died. It wasn't until I was in my late teens that I found out that hummingbirds don't sting!

When I was little I must have asked my dad why birds don't get electrocuted when they sit on the wires. His answer was "because the electricty only runs on the bottom of the wires". I believed that well into my 20's until I learned differently!

When I was little I loved the Pocahontas movie, and I used to sing in my backyard the colors of the wind song. However, whenever I did, If I heard a bird make a noise or the wind blow, I thought that I was being spoken to. I would get all excited and think the birds were actually trying to communicate with me. "Mommy, the birds are speaking to me!!"

Growing up in northern California I used to believe an Earthquake was a bird like a huge woodpecker that would land on the outside of your house and shake it. During an earthquake I would ask to go outside and see it.

When I was very small my parents told my twin brother and I that if we told a seagull our names they would let us catch them. That would lead to two small children chasing seagulls around the beach shouting their names as loud as we could.It never would but we kept believing it would ( maybe we were supposed to speak in Seagull)

When I was five, I asked my Nan why birds jumped and people walked (I know, nosey child) and she told me that if birds walked (or their legs moved independantly of one another) their brains would explode. I believed that until a year ago. I'm 25.

When me and my little sister were kids, I told her that peacocks make the sun rise and set. She believed this for years, until in she decided to stand up in class and share this fact with everyone else. We are both in our 20's, and I still make fun of her for it.

When I was 3, my grandfather told me I could catch a bird if I sprinkled salt on its tail. One day I found a baby bird that fell from its nest. I covered it with a blanket, and ran inside to tell my mom. "I need the salt, I'm gonna catch a bird" I screamed.
