Birds have long been a part of human folklore and superstition. They are considered to be messengers, symbols of good luck, or signs of both good and bad fortune, depending on the circumstances. One of the most common phenomena that people are often interested in is when birds build their nests near our homes. SSPDaily A will tell you about these folk beliefs.

Birds on the balcony

Many people have experienced the joy of finding a bird's nest on their balcony. In folklore, the type of bird that chose this place can have different meanings:

1. Pigeon nests:

Pigeons are often considered a symbol of peace, love and prosperity. According to tradition, if pigeons make a nest on a balcony, it means that the family living in that house is built on a foundation of trust and love. In addition, it is believed to portend imminent financial prosperity. For those who do not have a romantic partner, the presence of pigeons can mean the arrival of love in their lives. Some Christians even see a pigeon's nest on a balcony as a symbol of God's protection.

2. Ravens or gulls:

If crows or gulls have chosen a balcony for nesting, popular beliefs advise caution. These birds are often associated with negative signs, including death, illness, and poverty. To combat this, some people advise sprinkling holy water on the balcony, saying prayers, and taking measures to prevent the birds from nesting there.

Nests above or below windows

Windows are another favorite place for birds to nest. Specific species of birds and their behavior can have different interpretations:

1. Swallows:

Swallows are considered a symbol of protection. If swallows build a nest near a window, it is believed that they are protecting the inhabitants of the house. However, if the swallows suddenly leave the nest, it is considered a harbinger of potential danger, such as fire or other misfortune.

2. Pigeons and titmice:

Like swallows, pigeons and titmice nesting near windows are considered positive omens indicating protection. Their presence is believed to bring good luck to the house.

3. Other types of birds:

According to traditional beliefs, any bird, with the exception of swifts, crows, and eiders, that nests near the house is a sign of good luck. It is not recommended to chase away these birds and destroy their nests, as it is believed that this will cause you divine anger.

As a reminder, SSPDaily wrote about what it means when a bird hits a window.
