Default Words for bird cards

I have a LOT of bird stamps and would like to get a few more sentiments/words that are suitable for cards with birds on them (or feathers, nest, branch, wire, etc. - anything that would be suitable with a bird). So far this is what I have:
Thanks, that was so tweet of you.
Happy bird-day to you.
Birthdays are for the birds or Bird-days are for the birds.
Wishing you happiness in your new nest.
Congratulations. Another feather in your cap.
A little birdie told me.
Chirp up and get well soon.
Congratulations. I hear you have a new chick in your nest.
Got more suggestions? Thanks for sharing.

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.

Wow, Diane!!! What a great list! TFS!

I love "sitting in the catbird seat" -- so many images pop into my head with that one!

One I've used is:

"Just flying by to say..." (on front of card)

Inside of card can say "Hi" or "Happy Birthday" or whatever.

I got a Michael's dollar stamp at Valentine's of two birds in a birdcage, with hearts around it, which I have used on anniversary cards--"For the Love Birds."

If you have any owl stamps, you could have:

Owl always love you
Owl loves you forever
Thank whoooo
From "owl" of us
Hoooo-ray
You're a hooooot!
Guess whooo loves you (or misses you)?
You whooo! It's your special day!
Happy Owl-oween
Hoot hoot hooray!
Owl miss you!
Owl always be your friend
Who's having a birthday?!
I give a hoot!
Birds of a feather hoot together
Owl hope you'll feel better soon
From you know whooooo......
Hoot and holler
It's owl good!
See you later, owl-agator
Guess whooo's having a party?
I'm hootin' for you!
Owl always be here if you need me

If you have a crow stamp I've used Something to Crow about on a congratulations card.

And along the same theme, I have 2 darling chicken stamps from Penny Black--and always looking for more "poultry" themed sentiments. Please share any and thanks in advance.

Saw a card that had chickens on the front with word bubbles saying, "buck, buck, buck..." 20 times.

Inside the card said, "Here ya go, twenty bucks for your birthday!".

Just Chicken In on you...

One lady at my stamp club made a card with owls on it and one the inside it said, "Nice Hooters". It was hilarious.
