I once found an abandoned goose egg in the park , and remembering that eggs had to be kept warm at all times I took it home and wrapped a small blanket around it so that it would hatch .
When me or my brothers pouted and stuck our lip out my Dad would say that little birds were going to land on my lip and pinch it. when I looked away with my lip still out, my Dad would somehow get his finger up there and pinch me. He still does it when we pout. But we hardly ever pout.
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 belived That burrs were stiky so that birds would land on them and they would dry out and become more burrs So I always thought of it as something quite horrific actuall, and when they got stuck to my clothing I thought I had dead birds on me.
i used 2 think ostriches didnt have wings
I used to be scared of pigeons because they were always in the playground. I was afraid that they would peck the backs of my bare calves and the blood would gush out - as though my calves were just thin bags of blood that could be popped!
There is a room in the museum here full of stuffed birds and drawers containing eggs, nests, droppings, etc. I had a nightmare after visiting the museum that the drawer full of worms and the one full of nests was the same, and birds' nests were actually made of worms. I was thereafter afraid of touching nests for fear that the worms would be agitated and wiggle away, leaving the birds homeless.
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
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.
My nintendo game cube was K.O.I thought my parrot was magical because when i searched him behind curtains, I fell on it and then it worked again ! Magical this parrot !!!
I used to believe that it is always hot on the South and that pinguins wear the white t-shirts.
I'm 15, and I was just browsing the site. I feel insanely stupid, because I came across this one belief that states that they believed chickens and hens were the same breed of bird, and that they were always female, and that cocks were always male.
I too believed this, until about two minutes ago..
when i was little one of my friends said that seeing a single bulbul brings u bad luck....
so i always spy for another to make it two.......poppycock!
i still do it........help me!!!!!!!!!!
when me and my friends were about 4 or 5 we always tried to catch birds. So after my dad would mow the grass we would take the piles of grass and make little nests out of them then set them in the tree. No birds ever came XD.
When I was a kid my mother used to tell us that emus would peck your eyes out. Evennow Ican't go near emus in zoos and wildlife parks without wincing and turnign my head so they can't get my eyes!
My younger sister was seven and she was colouring in a picture I had drawn when she asked me if you could have brown birds, to which I replied "yes" of course. Then she said "oh yeah - in Pakistan".
when i was little i used to think e could hatch eggs. so..... me and my sister got an egg and put it in a sock waiting for it to hatch! one day we thought the baby chick (supposedly inside the egg) got bored.. so we picked up the sock and started flinging it around in the air! we almost cried when we had "killed" our baby chick (or so we thought.. it really just cracked open)
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!
3 female friends of the famly, always thought birds flying over your house was bad luck
We are all in big trouble if it is true
When I was little (grade 2 maybe) I saw a seagull pick up some chewing gum. It started expanding like it was in a bubble so I thought birds were smart and acted like humans!
