Dead Bird Symbolism
In Asian cultures birds often symbolise immortality. In Indian myth birds represent departed souls and in Christian art birds often appear as saved souls. Some people say when you find a dead bird the meaning is someone you loved passed away.
Others say that dead birds actually are a good sign, showing you that an end to turmoil or pain is coming. A dead bird doesn’t necessarily portend physical death, but metaphorical death. Perhaps you’re going through the heartache of a break-up. Perhaps you are struggling to find a job. This dead bird marks the end to your search and struggle. A new beginning is just around the corner. More specifically, it symbolizes the end of something and the start of something else.
Biblical meaning of dead birds
Birds play an important role in the bible. The reason why people have a special connection with birds is because we always envied their ability to rise above the ground and fly to the sky. Also people in ancient times paid much more attention to their dreams then nowadays.
If you dreamed about birds flying, such dream is a good omen and symbolizes your feeling of freedom and liberation of some problems that have been bothering you for a long time. These might have been some significant issues, which were stopping your progress and now you can sigh a relief and move on with your life.
Such dream symbolizes harmony, balance, love and joy. It symbolizes positive outlook on life and the future.
Some species of birds were used as examples of certain virtues of the Christian soul and the Saints themselves. A white dove, in the Bible, symbolizes the Holy Spirit. White doves often appear in stories in the Bible and their presence is always followed by something positive and their presence represents blessing from the God.
What does a dead bird you find symbolize?
If you’ve seen a dead bird in the road, or perhaps accidentally hit a bird, it may feel like a bad sign. Similar to the death tarot card, a dead bird is a symbol or an omen of a fresh start from an end and not simply an end. Overall and paradoxically, a dead bird symbolizes a new beginning. So no need to worry.

None of the mentioned happened (at least I did not notice) when I found this bird in my garden in Clapham, London.
