What Does It Mean When a Bird is Yellow?

A yellow bird is a sign of happiness and a good outlook on life. Depending on what kind of yellow bird it is—a canary, a finch, or any other yellow bird—the meaning is a little different. But joy still means the same thing in general.

In movies and books, yellow birds often stand for joy and happiness. Some yellow birds do mean something different depending on the situation. For example, the finch is often a sign that calm days are coming. People often associate a canary with the start of a new relationship or getting closer to a partner.

Birds have always stood for people’s hopes, dreams, and goals, both when they were awake and when they were asleep. For example, dream interpreters say that seeing or hearing birds flying or chirping is a sign of love, harmony, joy, and ecstasy.

Some people even think that birds help people feel spiritual or mental freedom. In this case, a bird means that the dreamer no longer has to carry something heavy.

In dreams, birds don’t always stand for hopes and goals. For example, seeing a dead bird in a dream is often a sign of disappointment. It makes sense that if a bird flying represents a person’s goals and dreams, then a bird’s death represents something bad happening or not being able to reach a goal.
