In dreams, dead birds can symbolize a loss of freedom. Various cultures view birds either as a way the soul is carried to heaven, or, in the case of vultures, ravens and crows, as a symbol of death.

I can only tell you that from experience. Without fail every time there was a dead bird found in my home someone I loved passed away. I started to believe that i twas more of a warning. It has happened with my grandmother, grandfather, my sisters fiance, my Nana and my dad. Every single time we found a dead bird in the house and within weeks they were dead. All of them had illness except my sisters fiance. So maybe coincidence but, whenever i do find one. I take it very seriously and pray for nothing to happen.

There is no meaning other than a cat or animal probably dragged it there. The bird could have also died of natural causes.
Yes, a dead bird is dead, no matter how much light you shine on it.
Nothing. You have a dead bird.
It means you have a bird-killing cat, or that the bird was not watching where he was flying, or that the bird suffered from some fatal illness (birds do become ill, just as people do). In the wild, birds often die or are killed, and then, other species will eat them. Occasionally, they die in a surprising (to us) place such as a lawn or a front step. And there is no mystical or supernatural meaning to a dead bird on your front stoop.
it means that the bird is dead nothing can help that
A dead black bird can mean a great many different things. A dead black bird can mean that there is disease in the population around you.
It's not so good for the bird, is it? Apart from that it has no meaning at all, unless an unkind person deliberately put it there to make you uncomfortable.
