According to superstition, this is supposed to mean an impending death!
I'm a bit freaked out as a bird just flew into our kitchen (through a small open window) and into the utility room, I then opened a window there and he flew out.
Back in 1985, my mother was sitting on the couch when a robin flew into the room and landed on her shoulder where he remained for a minute before flying off. An hour later, we found out my grandad had died - around the time this robin flew into the house.
My husband and son are gone to a football match about half an hour's drive away, and I'm worried! But my hubby is such a sceptic that if I phone him and tell him to be careful because of this he'll give me a bollocking!
Has anybody on this forum ever heard about this phenomenon?
