I believed that if i could fly if learned to whistle and flap my arms fast enough like a bird. but if I told anyone I knew this, the birds would take away this special ability forever...I'm sure this was an interesting sight for my neighbors

When I was eight, I thought my dad could translate what the birds were saying. I have no idea why.

while playing, we gals frequently used to hit our heads together accidentally.
I used to believe that it brings bad luck. so we do it again to give it a positive effect and run outdoors to watch for a coconut tree. such a weird belief!!

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!!

when i was younger i wanted a pet but we werent allowed so my older brother told me that if you get an egg and wrap it in a warm towel or keep it warm using your body heat then it will turn into a chick. i fink he said to hold it for like a whole day or something. during this time i wanted to check if th chick was actually growin so i cracked it to see if ther was a lil chick fetus thing there and when there wasnt i started all over again. ya i tried for AGES and needless to say there was no chick. :(

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.

I believe animals are our best friends. When we are sad or we feel lonely, they are there to support us.

i used to believe that the reproduction of chicken was the same as fish. i just pictured that cocks fertilised after hens laid eggs. however, my boss said it wasn't true.

I used to believe that if you pick up a bird feather that you would get arrested by the police. My sister told me this when i picked up a feather in my yard and i have believed it since.

I totally freaked out when my mother first showed me a peacock. Apparantly I confused the Dutch word of peacock 'paauw' with the imitation of a firing gun: pauw!

My mother has never seen me that scared ever since.

I used to think that if I stole eggs from the cupboard and kept them warm by wrapping them in towels a chick would be able to grow inside and eventually I would get my very own pet chick.
However I never actually tried it out of fear that the eggs would break.

before i could read and write, my mother ingrained in me that the droppings of birds were called 'bird spit' rather than the 1 letter difference of which at the time i had no knowledge. for a long time, i thought that bird droppings were universally known as spit even though it had nothing to do with saliva, just as a baby goat was called a kid, even though it wasn't human.

I used to believe that Ducks couldn't fly and that it was just in cartoons that they made them be able to fly for the fun of shooting them and making it seem funny!

I used to believe that when crows and/or ravens were flying overhead you could, if you closed your eyes and concentred, transfer your body and mind into the birds, and when you re-opened your eyes you could see the world as they saw it, while soaring above and looking down. I think I actually did that!!!
