    Are Birds Angels?

    I have always believed that birds are angels. While we humans believe that we are the most important creatures on earth, I believe that the birds that fly above us and nest around us are in fact the rulers of this planet. We have talked about angels for thousands of years, about creatures that watch above us, are we so ignorant not to see what is in front of our very eyes?

    We are actually all on an equal footing, so to speak. No one creature is more important than the other. I like birds, too.

      I love birds. But I thought Angels had halos,
      Never saw a bird with an angel. Only a crest.
      Good topic

    Why would an angel attack a squirrel in my back yard? Why would an angel fly into my window?

      There are good angels and bad angels, as stated in the bible. There is a constant battle between good angels and evil ones. The angel attacking the squirrel in your back yard is an evil one most probably or a good one fighting an evil squirrel.

    well here is my story.........

    First of all birds are not more important than us. God says, will I not feed you or clothe you, as I do to the birds and animals, are you not more valuable than them.

    Then as for birds being angels, to some decree yes. I have many a time drove down to our beach here for serene and quiet and prayed or spoke to God and the Angels. Many times birds would land in front of me as a sign or to send  me some kind of message.

    One time after speaking to God, I could hear this bird chirping like he was trying to tell me something and I looked up and there he was on a branch in front of my car as if trying to get my attention. Chirping away almost talking.

    When I noticed him he flew away. The message I did receive from that was that my prayers were answered and I noticed so now he could depart.

    Another time I was visiting and I was sitting in a room by myself, well next thing I know this bird attaches himself to the window sideways with no ledge or anything. It actually amazed me, started chirping then looked at me and flew away.

    So I am not really sure they are Angels, however I think they are messengers of angels/God. Look when the dove landed on the shoulder of Jesus as he was being baptized, it was the father/creator.

    So if you have faith and this is the way God knows you will understand a sign than yes I believe they are messengers with messages.

    God may use birds the same way he uses people to send you messages.  I had a pair of mallards that used to visit my pool, and it almost always meant something important or tragic was about to happen.

    Well a dove is the sign of The Holy Spirit.
    But that's a tricky question because the Holy Spirit makes up the Holy Trinity,
    And God is not a bird. Not is Jesus. But then again a dove is often used as a symbol of peace,
    We were told Angels always existed
    In Genesis God created every bird of the air so no birds are not angels.

      The Trinity is what's "tricky!"

    That is a very good question, Alfred. I for one believe that many of God's creatures are angels. Dogs, cats, birds, are all the most obvious ones that are angels. They all know how to show love and love is the basis of angels.
