Party at the nest
What's the word, bird
Friendship...that means you, chick!
Happy birthday, you old bird
Just chicken in
"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."
Maya Angelou
"I want to sing like the birds sing not worrying about who hears or what they think." - Rumi
I found these online...from a book of bird trivia (!)

Common Bird Sayings

A bird's-eye view.
A little bird told me.
That's for the birds.
He flew the coop.
Feather your nest.
Eat like a bird.
Free as a bird.
Sitting duck.
A lame duck president.
Scarcer than hen's teeth.
Madder than a wet hen.
Out on a lark.
A feather in your cap.
Something to crow about.
Wise as an owl.
Watch like a hawk.
As the crow flies.
Your goose is cooked.
Naked as a jay bird.
Voice like a nighingale.
Eagle eye.
Night owl.
Booby hatch.
Sitting in the catbird seat.
Like the cat who swallowed the canary.

Birdy Proverbs

Birds of a feather flock together.
The early bird catches the worm.
A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.
What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
Kill two birds with one stone.
Don't put all of your eggs in one basket.
Don't count your chickens before they are hatched.
On swallow does not make a summer
A peacock has fair feathers but fowl feet.

I'll stand with arms high and heart abandoned,
in awe of the One who gave it all.
I'll stand, my soul, Lord, to You surrendered,
all I am is Yours.
