The idiom 'a little bird told me' can be used when you don't want to tell somebody who gave you the information. Suppose your friend's brother told you that her favorite color is blue. You gave her a blue colored dress for her birthday and she asked if somebody told you about her favorite color. You don't want to reveal that it was her brother who told you so, of course. Even if she might know that it was him. So you can just tell her that a 'little bird told you'. That's right. This idiom can be also used in a playful manner when you think that the person who asked you knows who gave you the information. A little bird told me that you have a new crush on somebody. That's a nice example! So, are you gonna tell me about him? Are you serious? Who told you so? A little bird told me! Hi Mona, how are you? I'm fine and you? I'm fine too. Here. This is for you.
