I passionately love birds and have kept them as pets for years. Recently, I have had a recurring dream where I come home to find that they have all died, or are dying of starvation.

In one dream, I opened a cupboard to find them all hidden inside and nearly dead. In another, I left my father in charge of them, but came home to find he hadn't fed them and had let them all die. I accused him angrily of having been negligent towards them but he just shrugged it off.

In a third dream, my favorite pet bird, toward whom I feel very protective, was struggling to cross some train tracks. He was lost, terrified, and far away from home and safety. In the dream, there wasn't anything I could do to help him. I don't like these dreams at all. What do you think they mean?
