Thank you all for your responses and great information. My husband assured me the bird skeleton was already in the yard and it must have gotten blown over to my altar by the summer night breeze. I’ve added the skeleton to my altar. It looks scary up there. Do you think I should remove it?

The feather is very special to me and I believe with all my heart it was a gift. In fact, last night we were watching the sunset when a black raven came down to drink out of our pool. I’ve never seen ravens in our yard. This is super exciting and I’m doing a deep dive into google to learn all I can. I want him/her and their spouse (if they have one) to stay around.

Now, the bunny running up to me blows my mind. We are a little country out here and I’ve never had a rabbit act that way in the past. The rabbits out here are wild and skitterish. They don’t just hop up to people. I bought a box of bunny food to see if it will return. We also have adorable bats that live near our home. They swoop down very close to our heads. I think they are curious about who we are. Country life is amazing!

I prayed for some very specific things on the full moon. Time will tell if things start to happen. I’ll keep ya’ll posted.

Now, I have another question (advice/help/suggestions/support), but it has to do with my hair. It’s a long and sad story. I’ll go find the correct thread to post it in.

Thank you again for your help with the bird questions. Peace, Love, Happiness to all.

LVAngel --

In asking about hosting or venerating a bird skeleton on your altar, you are starting to move away from "Omens" -- the subject of this thread -- and into questions about the construction of personal altars, which is a very different area of thought and practice.

As for myself, i would not have anything on my own altar that looks, feels, or seems "scary" to me. However, other people i know enjoy these "scary" tokens of death. To each his or her own. Your mileage may vary.

Here is a link to the forum thread where folks discuss the construction, maintenance, and dedicatory possibilities of altars:

Altars: Questions and Answers

At the end of this message i will post a link to a very good book on altars written by our friend (and Forum Moderator) Phoenix LeFae.

I agree with others that the situation in your life right now is one of opening yourself to being a helper to the animals ad plants of the natural world. The bunny reminds me of the old nursery song, "Little Cabin in the wood, old man by the window stood, saw a rabbit hopping by, knocking at the door...." If you don;t know it, look it up.

Animals are in trouble now, and so are plants, due to human overpopulation (the cause of climage change and global warming). They are asking us for mercy and for aid.

Bats are not birds, and their meaning as omens is "spooky" in European folklore, but very, very "lucky" in Chinese folklore. Please read more about the symbolic and magical meanings of mammals, such as bunnies and bats, as omens in this forum thread:

Mammals as Omens: Cat, Dog, Horse, Bat, Squirrel, Etc.

Now, here is a link to purchase a very good, inexpensive book about altars in the hoodoo tradition. In addition to a tremendous amount of practical and spiritual instruction, it also contains a great selection of Frequently Asked (and ANSWERED) Questions taken right from the pages of the Lucky Mojo Forum!
