, originally uploaded by Muse Amour. Birds have long since been associated with the holidays from turkeys being the unfortunate main course to the infamous Twelve Days of Christmas where one gives his true love a slew of birds…seven swans a swimming, six geese a laying, four calling birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. So, how can we incorporate the birds into our holidays more (without eating them hahaha)

Crow, originally uploaded by kuba ryniewicz. The caption reads: View from my living room. Winter time and the wind brought new bird spieces to the neighborhood.

Bird is the Word, originally uploaded by fillzees. I would like to share some bird idiom and phrases with you… An albatross around someone’s neck is a problem that prevents someone from succeeding. As a duck takes to water means something is easy or natural, taking to something naturally. As bald as a coot means someone or something is completely bald. As crazy as a loon means someone or something is crazy. As dead as a dodo means someone or something is dead, no longer in existence. As easy as duck soup means something is very easy, requiring little to no effort. As free as a bird means to be carefree, to be completely free. As graceful as a swan means to be very graceful.
