But if a bird continues to fight in the window to a girl for marriage, you should expect the arrival of matchmakers soon.

A light one-off knock on the window, according to ancient signs, meant a quick arrival of guests. And how many birds will be knocking, so many visitors should be expected.

Another interpretation of the dream is getting the news from a loved one whom the dreamer has not seen for a long time.

What actually means

Nowadays there are enough logical explanations why a bird can hit the window of an apartment building:

  • Rescues from a predator, especially if it is small in size. The bird does not see the transparent window and tries to get into the first shelter.
  • A bird through the window could see something very attractive or tasty on the window sill or table by the window. Usually these are young birds, only acquainted with the world, who still hardly imagine the structure of the human dwelling.
  • A bird can be elementary drunk. In the thaw or late autumn on the trees there are many fruits that begin to ferment under the influence of plus temperatures. As a result, birds, drunk with intoxicating mountain ash, lose their orientation in space, and accidentally hit the window.
  • The bird takes its reflection in a window after itself similar and knocking tries to attract its attention.

I do not really believe in omens, but one thing made me think. It happened quite recently: a sparrow struck the window of the living room from the spill, flew to a tree, and again struggled through the window. And so he did without stopping. Husband pushed back the curtain, waved his hands at the sparrow, and that harm flew away. But after a few minutes we again heard blows in the glass. And then both of us both lit up: today was the 10th anniversary of the death of her husband's grandfather, and we did not even remember! As soon as we said it out loud, the sparrow flew away. Grandfather was mentioned.
