: a little bird told me

What did a little bird tell you? In my country, you say, "A little birdie told me," if you say it at all, when someone asks, "How do you know that?" and you prefer not to identify the informant. Or you might volunteer it, in some such form as, "A little birdie told me you're on the outs with John." What was the question? SS
