What does it mean when you see a swarm of blackbirds?
Herein, what does it mean when you see a flock of blackbirds?
Simply put, this means that the mathematical odds that a bird will get eaten are smaller when the flock is larger. A large flock also promotes greater feeding efficiency because the birds share information about food sources. “Blackbirds are known to be great communicators,” says Williams.
One may also ask, why are there a bunch of blackbirds in my yard? The blackbirds congregate for food and protection. While some birds migrate alone, blackbirds find strength in numbers. They cooperate to find food — whether in a field, backyard or parking lot — and keep an eye out for predators.
Similarly one may ask, what does it mean to see a flock of ravens?
A group of ravens is called an "unkindness" or "conspiracy," which seems fitting, since ravens are traditionally considered creepy; in fact, seeing many of them in one place can induce Hitchcockian "The Birds"-like flashbacks in even the least ornithophobic (those people with a fear of birds).
Is a Blackbird good luck?
