What Does it Mean?
When someone says, “A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush” they are using an English idiom that warns against taking risks.
The idea is to tell the listener not to risk losing what they have (the bird in the hand) to go after what they might not be able to get (the two in the bush).
