Birds of a feather flock together by ajisaac

Birds of a feather flock together

Not really a 'flocking together' but I just love the contrast between the black jackdaws and the white metallic crowing cock on top of the church steeple, which has a wonderful leaning weather vane!

The phrase ‘birds of a feather flock together’ appears to be at least over 470 years old.

It was in use as far back as the mid-16th century. William Turner is said to have used a version of this expression in the Rescuing of Romish Fox, from the year 1545:

“Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye allwayes together.”

At some point, a birds flocking behaviour started to be applied metaphorically to people who acted in a similar way, and now today, we have this saying.
