Small Red Bird Landed on my Shoulder

Last night I had a beautiful dream. I was sitting on my couch in front of my door, looking outside. I saw a dog chasing a small red bird. I couldn't tell what kind of bird it is because I know nothing about birds and their specific names...but I googled for small red bird images and it looks very close to these photos.

The colour of the bird in my dream is vibrant red and when it is shaking its tail, you can almost see florescent red! It is very beautiful, I think one of the most beautiful birds I've ever seen.

Anyway, the dog was chasing the bird up to my house entrance, and the red bird flew into my house through the door and landed on my right shoulder! The grip was pretty strong and I could see that it's about 10cm only. I remember being excited because this is the first time it ever happened.

The bird seems to be comfortable and safe around me. Whenever I went, it was on my shoulder and sometimes flew around for a bit and came back to me. Outside my house, I saw a few other birds like this one, except different colours but they all have "shiny"?, rainbow-coloured tails (the colour only shows when they shake their tails).

One time, the red bird was flying to the ground before I left the place, I whistled twice. It then flew and landed on my finger...the red bird and I were like good friends.

I couldn't remember the dream after that but all I know is that dream is so peaceful and happy. I woke up smiling to myself.

I found the Bird Dream Interpretation on

"Dream of birds symbolizes freedom, ideal or benefits. It basically is a good luck, and if you see birds flying around cheerfully, it indicates that your inspiration or creativity is becoming fertile. You should write down your ideas in order to make things turn out well. Also if you catch a bird in your dream it is a sign that you'll be able to get what you wanted. There might be a happy event especially in love or in money matter"

Hmm....what could this mean??


  1. Last night I dreamed that two birds landed on my shoulder, consecutively. I caught the second one, to show to my companion, before letting it go. This one was bigger than the first and had yellow on it. Remembering it this morning, I wonder about its significance in my life. I watched the movie Tuesdays with Morrie the other day. In it, Morrie mentions the Buddhist story about having a bird on one's shoulder to ask you daily if this is the day you die. It is a reminder that we should be living each day as if it is our last. I like what you found, though, about how catching that bird can mean that I will be able to get what I want. (Which brings up the question, what do I really want?)

  2. I dreamed I came upon several small birds. Perhaps they were finches. I really don't know, but one cheerfully hopped on my finger and peered into my eyes.
