When you dream about a bird flying or chirping, it’s thought by most to be a good sign- a positive one of liberation from limitations or boundaries.

You might feel like you’ve been freed of something lately- a relationship, a job, a responsibility or even a psychological burden. To put it simply- it might feel to you like you’ve had a huge weight lifted from your shoulders in your waking life.

Perhaps you are reaching and aiming high for your dreams and goals and it feels good to finally be going further than you have before. However, if the bird flew too high, you may be striving for something that is outside of your capabilities and you might need to be more realistic.

If you have yet to pursue your ambitions then this dream could be telling you that you have choices and possibilities and are not restricted by anything or anyone once you make a decision.

To see a bird in a cage in a dreamscape, you may feel like you’re trapped in something during your waking hours and are looking for a way out.

Finally, if the bird was singing then you could be due some good news or are feeling a general sense of joy and happiness at present.
