  • Lol! I saw your earlier question. It sure sounded like she was putting you down, but I have no idea how!! There are beautiful black/purple birds in West Africa. So I do know what the bird is, but am not sure what the insult is!

  • Purple Martin? They start to migrate to Brazil in the middle of August. Having said that, they aren't black and purple just a deep purplish black. I'm in southern NJ and we look forward to them migrating every year.

  • In what context was the phrase used? That may help figure out the meaning.

  • I saw your previous post and I truly believe she is just jealous of you.

    She could have meant you look like a black/purple bird to her and that obviously sounds like she wishes she could do the same to her hair but can't so take it as a compliment.

    I think she was trying to start something or make you feel bad.
