What was that bird saying you once heard.

A little picture tale.

They said to me, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket," as
I was trying to watch the birdie on a log, while also
looking at a bird in the hand,
but wishing for the two in the bush that I saw.
I knew that with a good throw I could kill two birds with one stone, if they were close together.
But I didn't worry because, as birds of a feather flock together

and as most birds don't fly by night, they would be there tomorrow.

I realized that there may be a few lucky ducks that had

flown the coup and got away, so my advice always this:

Don't count your chickens before they have hatched.
You may have to be satisfied with a bunch of lame ducks,
oh, and don't mention that the birds have flown,
but then again, the early bird catches the worm.
So always keep your pecker up I say.
But if you get up with the birds, don't go out
naked as a jay bird like this one.
People will just think you're as silly as a goose,
or a bit of a bird brain, and this may hang

around your neck like an albatross.

I had a neck photo but not an albatross.

If it does hang there, it could even be your swan song.

If you get up with the lark, high up in deed,

you could end up with something to crow about,
and be able to walk around proud as a peacock.
Remember, if you can throw a few stones you could have a chicken in every pot
and if the birds are young like a spring chicken
although they are scarcer than hen's teeth
everyone would say that you're as wise as an owl
and you know how to feather your own nest.
With my advice, they won't be saying things like you're Cuckoo; I didn’t have the bird so I used a cuckoo wasp,

or that you run around like a chicken with its head cut off.

So don't be a stool pigeon, keep your little secret,
and never stick your head in the sand
Always come up with some story so you don't have to eat crow.
Let them know that now you don't have to eat like a bird
and you're not bothered if you eat the only bird in a gilded cage, ok is not gilded and it also got out. Also
that you don't know which came first, the chicken or the egg.
Be proud! Tell them you don't give a hoot about the
"Why did the chicken Cross the Road" thing. It just wanted to know where the geese were going.

After all, that's for the birds!

They may say you are as silly as a loon. I know, it's not a real loon.
But you know, as the crow flies it sees everything

with its bird's eye view

and knows that I'm not as bald as a coot, so there.

Hope you enjoyed our little tale.
