Many crows collected in a field portend rain.

When birds and badgers are fat in October expect a cold winter.
When the cuckoo comes when the leaves are not on the trees, it is a sign of a hard year.

As long as the bird sings before Candlemas, so long will it wail after it.

On Candlemas Day a good goose will lay;
But on Valentine's Day any goose will lay
