Since the setting of a dream embodies your 'inner landscape' - dreams that take place in a jungle setting can relate to how you explore your more wild or exotic self that seeks expression beyond the restrictions of conformity. It is common for dream themes to move into this more organic or earthy setting when you are going through a type of rebirth or actualizing (authentic) self expression. Trees can also relate to family dynamics. If the landscape is threatening - you may feel unsure about expressing your more 'animal' or authentic drives and passions. Exotic birds can tie the idea of exotic (authentic) expression with the idea of how it can help you 'fly.' See also Animals and Landscapes and Scenery.
