Bird dreams

I know this sounds like kind of a silly topic, but share you weird/funny/fantastic bird dreams!

Last night I dreamt that I was photographing my lifer Cape May Warbler in a tree barely five feet away from me!

Another dream last night was seeing a big flock of Amazona parrots fly by (apparently inspired by @Caley Thomas 2.0 😂) and my lifer Verdin! 
 

Anybody else?

I once dreamt of Ivory-billeds in our pines.

I've definitely dreamt about birds before, and more often than not I end up waking up because the birds are WRONG in my dreams and I realize I'm dreaming. One time it was a Northern Wheatear that the pattern was "swirled" and it had purple iridescence. 

I've also dreamt about looking at warblers in trees, and a Townsend's Warbler showed up.

I rarely remember my dreams…….but I’m sure they’re about birds…

I've had three different dreams about finding rare birds at my feeders. One was a Mountain Chickadee (a "common" rarity in the area), one was some crazy red exotic bird that I made up, and I don't remember the last one but I know it happened! My most recent bird dream was about finding Common Redpolls in my neighborhood.  My dreams seem to suggest that my greatest desire is to find local rarities. I wouldn't say that's inaccurate!

OK,  crazy story - I don't particularly remember ever dreaming about birds but after reading this thread last night I dreamed that I was sitting beside a big lake on a calm day when I saw a single big wave coming and a half dozen Great Egrets were surfing it just on their feet. 😂

Last night I had a dream I was birding somewhere local, and a bunch of chickadees and titmice were acting weird around some small pine trees, I looked closer, and there was a Saw whet, then another, and another. Of course kinda in the open for good photos and I remember thinking, “Wow, these aren’t that hard to find after all!” 😂😢

If only that were true! I want one.

I've been studying the Spanish language and sometimes dream in Spanish.  I am hoping to become a more efficient dreamer by dreaming about anxious birds speaking español.  Maybe a Resplendent Quetzal and a Common Potoo having a conversation about the whereabouts of their kids or suddenly realizing they forgot to show up for a final exam.

I think I'm going to start a bird dream life list.

Last night I had a dream where I was birding at a fictitious hotspot, THAT I HAVE DREAMED ABOUT BEFORE. It would be really cool if that became a recurring dream. I have a feeling it's a constructed place based on a couple of places I have really liked birding at, but still, it was really cool. 

What I remember seeing:

Mallard, Wood Duck, Bufflehead, Canvasback, Ruddy Duck, Northern Gannet

Either I really have dreamed about this place before, or I had dream déjà vu again
