    Little Bird

    I would like to translate "little bird" as a term of affection (poetic rather than literal). Thanks, Darryl

    Maybe "крохотная пичужка", "мелкая птаха".
    I'd appreciate if you can post more information about the context of world you want to translate.
    Единственное, что люди любят давать бесплатно - это советы.

    Да, голубка. Ещё есть голубок, голубочка, голубочек, голубчик (последнее - не птичка).

    Спасибо, я знаю...
    Просто меня удивил такой уверенный перевод слова "little" именно как "малюсенькая"
