The literary origin of the phrase “ A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush “ was first recorded in 1670 in John Ray’s – A Handbook of Proverbs.

In medieval times, Falconry was on the rise as a means to hunt prey. The owner of the Falcons could not risk losing their trained birds to catch a prey and the rule was to only ever to try and catch prey that was easily accessible. Hence the expression “ a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”
