A bird in the hand

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. What in the hell does that even mean? A bird in the hand is going to get messy, and what's with the bush? You think the birds in there are going to be checking out the one in the hand and thinking 'Don't you wish you were that guy? He's worth more than us, and we're in the bush!' Seriously, who comes up with this stuff?
