”When we were filming the scene in ‘The Birds’ where the sparrows fly into the living room, I said to Jessica Tandy, “Jessica, if one of those birds flies up your skirt then be sure to grab it. Because a bird in the hand…”

Alfred Hitchcock to Kenneth Williams, 1972.

it is now a cliche, but the saying is "A bird in hand is worth two in the bush" meaning taking what you can get immediately is worth more than waiting around for the promise of something better which may not materialize... the quote itself is a bit off-color given the alternative meaning of bush...
