The logo for the US postal service in the late 80's and 90's was a profile of a bald eagle. I could never see the eagle properly. I thought it was a really crappy abstraction of an eagle head with the tip of the wing as the nose, the rest of the wing as the head, and the body and head as the collar (cause the eagle was wearing a collared shirt, of course!) It wasn't until I was 12 that I suddenly realized it really was an eagle.

My babysitter told me the Reason people would "watch you like a hawk" was because hawks loved the taste of toddler meat.. and would swoop down when hungry and carry you off..

I had a dream when I was younger that a caged bird rested behind my bed. Every time I went to sleep, it would come out and float above me. I didn't know it was a dream at the time, so I always put a bunch of pillows against the wall to keep the bird from getting me again.

when i was rather young i knew that birds didn't fly just by moving their wings rapidly up and down but that they moved them in a certain way. i figured that if i could somehow master how they did it, then i would be able to fly too!

When I was younger, I used to believe that this metal ball on the top of an electric pole was a bird that froze on top of the pole during the winter months. As summer came, I saw the same thing, and wonder why it didn't move.

When I was 4, I had a bad dream that big mean owls stole my pretzels and ate them. So whenever I went camping and was eating, I would hunch over my food to make sure the owls didn't steal my food.

Half my life I used to believe that humming birds didn't have feet. I felt really sorry for them, because I thought they were doomed to spend their entire lives hovering. Then one time I saw a humming bird by our feeder I started crying because I had seen birds LAND on it. My mom came in saw me crying and told me the truth.
