Dream about catching a red bird is an indication for your perceptions about your own ideals in the context of social norms. All the energy that you are putting into a project may not be worthwhile. You are trying to reveal or expose an aspect of yourself that you have kept hidden. Your dream represents hard work, labor and diligence. You are in tune with your own feelings or the feelings of others.
Catching a red bird dream is sometimes your creativity or accomplishments. You are tongue-tied. You are dealing with some situation. This dream suggests a conflict with your mother or some dominant female figure in your life. You need to expose and examine some secrets and learn from them.
If you dreamt about catching a red bird:
Be open to other people's ideas, even if they don't necessarily match up with your own. Integration with others is easier than doing battle with others. Take this concept to heart regardless of whom you are dealing with. It will serve you well.
