Hebrew translation:

211. אֲשֶׁר הָלַךְ חֲשֵׁכִים, אֲשֶׁר הָלְכוּ צָרִיךְ לוֹ לִכְתֹּב! אָמַר רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהֵם שְׁרוּיִים בְּחִבּוּר וּמִיָּד נִפְרָדִים. הָלַךְ הַחִבּוּר – חֲשֵׁכִים נִפְרְדוּ. שׁוֹרִים בְּחִבּוּר וְנִפְרָדִים מִיָּד. כְּמוֹ זֶה (יחזקאל א) רוּחַ סְעָרָה בָּאָה, כְּלַל שֶׁל זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה. בָּאָה וְהִיא עוֹזֶבֶת אוֹתוֹ, מִיָּד נִפְרָדִים.
212. וַיַּרְא בָּלָק וְגוֹ’. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר אָמַר, וַדַּאי מַה שֶּׁאָמַר רַבִּי חִיָּיא, דָּבָר נִסְתָּר הָיָה. אֲבָל כָּתוּב, (תהלים פד) גַּם צִפּוֹר מָצְאָה בַיִת וּדְרוֹר קֵן לָהּ וְגוֹ’. וְכִי דָּוִד הַמֶּלֶךְ עַל צִפּוֹר בָּעוֹלָם הָיָה אוֹמֵר דָּבָר זֶה?
213. אֶלָּא כְּמוֹ שֶׁשָּׁנִינוּ כַּמָּה חֲבִיבוֹת הַנְּשָׁמוֹת לִפְנֵי הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא. אִם תֹּאמַר כָּל נִשְׁמוֹת הָעוֹלָם – לֹא כָּךְ! אֶלָּא אוֹתָן נִשְׁמוֹת הַצַּדִּיקִים שֶׁשָּׁם מְדוֹרָן אִתּוֹ, מְדוֹרֵיהֶן לְמַעְלָה וּמְדוֹרֵיהֶן לְמַטָּה, וְכָךְ נֶאֱמַר. גַּם צִפּוֹר מָצְאָה בַיִת – אֵלּוּ רוּחוֹת הַצַּדִּיקִים.


Zohar Balak

When the male and female of the other-side are united they are called ‘Stormy Wind’ but after they come together as one, they immediately separated.

Numbers 22:2 “וַיַּרְא בָּלָק בֶּן צִפּוֹר אֵת כָּל אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה יִשְׂרָאֵל לָאֱמֹרִי.” “Now Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites.”
‘Zippor’, ‘צִפּוֹר’, means ‘a sparrow’,’ a bird’.
Rabbi Elazar quotes Rabbi Chiyah who said that there is a secret in this verse.
Psalms 84:4 “גַּם צִפּוֹר מָצְאָה בַיִת וּדְרוֹר קֵן לָהּ אֲשֶׁר שָׁתָה אֶפְרֹחֶיהָ אֶת מִזְבְּחוֹתֶיךָ יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת מַלְכִּי וֵאלֹהָי.” “Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young— Even Your altars, YHVH of hosts, My King and my God.”
King David also mentions a ‘sparrow’ and the Zohar asks; would king David refer to a physical bird or is there a secret behind this word?

He answers: we learned that the Holy One Blessed be He loves the souls, but not all of them. He only loves the souls whose dwellings are with him.
When King David said “Even the sparrow has found a home”, he referred to the souls of the righteous that have dwellings above and below.

Balak was wicked and evil. He used a bird to make magic and reveal spiritual secrets for him. King David used the word ‘bird’ to refer to pure souls that have the merit of dwelling with YHVH.

When the people walk with righteousness, they prepare for themselves a home above. With every positive action that reveals light, they improve their dwelling above.

Seeing a bird in a dream is usually a good sign with a message of peace. If the bird is black then it means that the soul of a person carries sins that can bring judgments on him. In such a case one should make a day fast, pray, and give Tzedakah to remove judgments.
