Japanese Crane Bird Stereotypes

In general birds are often portrayed as being stupid. The English language has the expression "having a bird brain," meaning being not very bright. Another expression "eating like bird" is derived from the idea that birds have a small appetite. Some birds have an association with beauty. In British English the word "bird" can also mean a "pretty attractive girl." The fact that songbirds whistle has also contributed to these animals' association with beauty.
