What’s in a name?
Why Little Bird Communication?
Katie created the name Little Bird Communication from the phrase ‘A little bird told me’ and the prevalence of birds in storytelling and symbolism. Over the centuries numerous authors have made reference to birds delivering messages.
Birds have been symbols of power and freedom throughout the ages. From the wise and learned owl and the singing nightingale, to the peaceful dove and the humble and purposeful carrier pigeon, birds represent many features admired by mankind.
Birds warn of dangers ahead, reveal secrets, and guide heroes and travellers on their way.
