Dear autistics: Take "Bird-Brain" as a compliment!

After much incidental observation, I came to the conclusion that the sparrows outside my window would start chirping in this loveless hood whenever they heard me singing or humming.

Life begets life.

(And we creatures are immediately inclined to preserve life, in kind).

In my life, I have seen that birds have an intelligence, and feeling, beyond us, just like cats. After all, birds have been around for many, many more millions of years, since the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs weren't stupid, they just had bad luck.

Fairly recently, I have come to the conclusion that whenever I would cook eggs, with my window open, the sparrows outside my window would start chirping nervously. They seem opposed to cooked eggs for some reason.

A few days ago, I was cooking eggs, and the birds began to chirp. But, I thought, "How can that be? My fan is running air INSIDE, not OUTSIDE." I later checked the fan... I had accidentally set it to run air out, rather than in. Birds know.

Birds are watching us. They take a dump on people who they generally think deserve it.

Birds think a thousand times faster than we do. Their individual species songs may seem identical, but they are just CARRYING WAVES. Astute birds are listening in to the finer, faster, frequencies along these waves.

Birds are geniuses.

Humans only come to understand this after they have committed egregious crimes, so devoid of humanity and nature in their lives. They get sent to Alcatraz. After many years, they find out that birds are smarter than we are.

And then we call these prisoners crazy.

In most medieval paintings, meaning to convey foreboding, there is a dark bird painted into a corner. Why? Because birds are oracles. Listen to your elders!

Birds think so fast, they can see various futures, including your own. You may see a cat sitting, knowing a dog will be approaching, and then the cat will spryly dash off.

But there is something sitting aside, who is smarter than the psychic cat.

There is the bird.


Humanity may have failed if it were not for these sweet omens.

Your observation is very interesting! For sure birds have a very high level of intelligence. Once I incidently observed how smart can ravens be. It was in the centre of Moscow several years ago. I saw a  raven who was trying to crack a dry bread -ring but  without success. Then it suddenly found a  decision. There were tram railways near that place so it took a bread ring in the beak and put it on the tram track. Then a tram came and cracked a dry bread - ring. Then a raven sat on the railway and started to eat the bread. I was shocked how quickly it found a way, I would have never found a solution that quickly.
Also there's a superstition here in Russia that if a pigeon flies into your window it means that a member of your family is going to die soon. I'm not superstitious at all and I don't believe that but there are lots of stories about that. People claim that it's true. Probably pigeons are oracles. Who knows!

I find your story of the raven wonderful! As you know, crows and ravens are very intelligent. You are so lucky to have seen that. But I know you are also a "rare bird" who is out observing, as well! Yes, that raven had a lot of imagination and forethought! Or - maybe he has seen ravens in the past do this, who knows?

Well, as far as birds and death, I honestly suspect that this can be true. I say this not from superstition, but from some observation and also a true story or two.

One of my beloved relatives was dying. I spent the nights, away from her, on her former bed. Meanwhile, night after night, there were noises in the chimney. I accidentally left the lid off the fireplace, and soon, the trapped bird flew into the bedroom.

Unusually, the bird looked at me with one eye, as I lovingly approached it, and allowed me to capture it in a little box. Then I took the box outside and released her.

Soon, my relative died. I felt as if I had set her spirit free - at least free from her love of me. And, this event was accompanied by some other very odd events. It certainly was meaningful to me.

I hope I can find an interesting story (audio link) I posted in my LJ some years ago, (once or twice), about Spalding Grey's death, and a bird in his house. Perhaps it is in my tags under "animals - birds".

I apologise for my delay in commenting back. I do get really ill, and it is hard to keep up. Indeed, I really did appreciate this comment, and wanted to have my head clear so I could respond - responsibly to you. I also hope to get to know you more, as you seem to be a special person.
