"The mythology of the bluebird of happiness has deep roots that go back thousands of years. Indigenous cultures across the globe hold similar myths and beliefs about the bluebird. It is a widely accepted symbol of cheerfulness, happiness, prosperity, hearth and home, good health, new births, the renewal of springtime, etc. Virtually any positive sentiments may be attached to the bluebird.

In magical symbology, bluebirds are used to represent confidence in the positive aspect and egotism in the negative. A dead bluebird is a symbol of disillusionment, of the loss of innocence, and of transformation from the younger and naive to the older and wiser."

SD, you know I was thinking of you, when I took this....!

    Thankyou for the interesting information about Blue Birds. Here in B.C. they can be found every time I go camping in the forrests. And they have a unique cackle sound that wakes me in the morning. I have also had them come to my wild bird feeder at home to.
