The thrush and its purpose [In reply to] Can't Post

If the thrush can understand Common, why can't it speak Common to the dwarves? Why didn't it try speaking with the dwarves before now?

I think that, in order to play his role in the prophecy written on the Map, the thrush was in a way "under orders" to make no contact with the dwarves until the fulfillment of his purpose.

Once the dwarves did open the door, did he only keep them under surveillance - perhaps there was more that he knew about, regarding the emergence and eventual death of Smaug? If so, then of course he would still have to keep his silence!

And once more I wonder what other hidden runes might have been written on that Map...


"I desired dragons with a profound desire"
