Hi Blue
an astonishing large and varied belief of folklore has grown up around birds on one hand man feels a strong connection to birds because they build nests in his garden or on the eaves of his home. on the other hand their freedom of flight to parts unknown has always fascinated man. migration was not fully understood before the 18th century.odd tales arose from these migrations which i have previously mentioned a few of. since St Paddys day is around the corner we thought for the next few days we would talk about irish folklore involving birds.
the Cuckoo was thought to turn into a Hawk before departing for its winter destinations. it is very unlucky to kill a Cockoo or break its eggs because a Cuckoo brings with it fine weather. the first time you hear a Cuckoo look down at your feet. if a hair is laying there you will live to comb your grey locks at an old age. a poem also accompanies the Cuckoo:
if a cuckoo sits on a bare throne
you may del your cow and buy corn
but if she sits on a green bough you may sell your corn and buy a cow.

it is most unlucky to kill a Robin Redbreast. the Robin is Gods own bird, sacred and holy and held in the highest esteem. it is believed the Robin plucked out a thorn piercing Christs brow on the cross and in so doing his breast was covered and dyed red in his blood.the Robin has since remained a sacred and blessed sign to preserve it from harm and make it beloved of all men.
