Bird Proverbs

“If you venture out with vultures,

you might just start to hiss.”

 (a Granny-ism)

Vultures don’t have the vocal chords to sing prettily like many birds. They make a rude hissing sound. They are birds of prey that eat carcasses – dead bodies of animals. Yuck! They eat “road kill” – those poor animals that got hit trying to cross the highway.

This proverb means that if you hang around with people who do nasty, bad things and use bad language, you might start to act and talk like them. Rather, you should be friends with people who do good things and talk nicely. If you hang with bad people who do bad things and use bad words, they will want you to do bad things with them. Be wise! Choose good friends! Don’t be fooled!

“Bad company ruins good morals.”

The Bluebird of Hoppiness wants to get back to her friends.  The vultures are not too friendly towards her.

“Birds of a feather flock together.”

Another proverb is “Birds of a feather flock together.” It means people keep company with other people who like to do the same things. So, don’t hang out with vultures!

It looks as if the Bluebird of Hoppiness found her friends!
