Where does that old saying even come from? Does it mean that if you are in control of one bird it's actually a better situation than having 2 birds? I've never understood it or had the urge to look it up. I feel like having any birds, in general, wouldn't help you nowadays. Other than Bird Person from Rick and Morty, or Pidgeon Man in Hey! Arnold, there can't be a whole lot of benefit to controlling birds. Just sayin.
