So, how to interpret this card? The connection to the element of air is clear, and seems to affect how the card is seen. Some people associate it with things that are exciting or which make us nervous - getting us all aflutter, so to speak. Many people connect the Birds with verbal communication and chatter or gossip. They can also be seen as thoughts, those strange things which flit here and there unless we calm them by finding our own inner wisdom.
That wisdom is something I associate more with owls than with these colourful songbirds. Still, each interpretation is possible, depending on which keywords you choose for the card. And if you want a broader spread of options, you can include all three bird cards, for different perspectives on thought and communication.
