I have never heard of this, in my life I have had much to do with sparrows. an avid bird and animal lover I feed the birds around my house, my cat has dragged many in and I have saved some sparrow lives ..not all .strange story
I too am an animal and bird lover. I don't believe the Sparrows are viewed as bad, or at least not in my case. They are viewed as a warning when they perform certain behaviors. The belief is that they have to attempt to get in the window, or house, actually fly in, or attempt to fly in on their own. I don't think Mr. Kitty bringing them in against their will counts in this case.
LOL I get so darn mad at my cat when he messes with my birds, and he will sit in the window swishing around his tail, making this weird monkey like sounds when he's watching them outside and it's almost like his teeth are chattering the way his mouth moves. It Is HILARIOUS LOL.
Have A Wonderful Night Hun and God Bless Brenda
I hear that Italy has a had a lot of doves falling from the sky now, makes me so sad all these dear birds..I dont believe its fireworks ...
Yes Marg, That is so terribly sad that those beautiful doves are dying due to something that can be prevented. They are suspecting fireworks in relation to all those blackbird deaths I believe also, aren't they? Leave our beautiful birdies alone PLEASE.
God Bless Brenda
Its funny you say that cause it happened to me a few months ago. A sparrow entered my house by the chimney and sat at the window just looking at me. when i went to get it out it flew back through the chimney and out it went. A few days later a very very close family friend had a semi accident and died of horrific head injuries. It shook us up and i still have a hard time believeing he is now gone.
So as soon as i read your post i thought of this straight away.
wow. maybe next time i get a sparrow inside ill start prepairing myself.
OHHH Hun, I am so sorry for your loss, and my heart goes out to you. It so hard when we lose those we love and care for. If it happens again or you see it outside of the window like I described in my original post, I certainly wouldn't ignore the possibility because unfortunately, I've seen it happen over and over again since childhood.
One time it happened, while my father was in the hospital with really bad pneumonia, so of course, I was terrified thinking he was the one who was going to die. My sister's mother-in-law went to the hospital to see my dad. My sister while waiting for the elevator to arrive at her floor, heard someone screaming, "Please Help Me." When the elevator opened there laid her mother-in-law on the elevator floor. She had fallen and was bleeding on the side of her head. She was taken to ER, a Cat Scan was done, and they said everything was fine and sent her home. A week later she died due to a bleed in her head. Of course, we were devastated because of it.
One specific thing I have determined since seeing the Sparrow at the window this past time, and it may not be true for everyone but has proved to be true many times so far in my sightings, is that if someone is in the hospital, ill at home, or scheduled for surgery that I am aware of at the time of seeing the Sparrow, they will not be the one who is going to die. It appears to always be someone I wasn't suspecting could possibly die, someone I didn't know was ill, or in fact wasn't ill at the time.
Again, I am so sorry for your loss. God Bless Brenda
