There is an old English saying, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. This phrase in its earliest incarnation can be traced back to the year 1530. If you stretch even further you can find a similar tale from the bible, Ecclesiastes 9:4 reads “a live dog is better off than a dead lion”. Simply put, the opportunities you currently posses are better than perceived or possible opportunities of the future. Thinking that there was a witty saying for nearly every situation I hit the books looking for one to describe the situation below.
Shockingly, I came up empty. There doesn’t seem to be a saying relating to bird eggs resting on the tire of ex-military transport. My wife grabbed these photos while visiting the Yankee Candle mother ship in South Deerfield, MA. Taking a guess at the bird that laid the eggs I would say it was a robin. No matter what, that bird has good taste.
