“Birds of a feather flock together”

Meaning given by The Phrase Finder

Those of similar taste congregate in groups.

Personally, I prefer the meaning by the Urban Dictionary:

When people that act the same, hang out together.

People that have the same morals often tend to group.

It has nothing to do with jealousy, nor the amount of friends a person is allowed to hang out with.

It is NOT pointed towards having a close friend neither.

It simply means when people act the same, they normally hang out.

Like a clique.

Its Origin

The first known citation in print of the currently used English version of the phrase appeared in 1599.

In The Dictionarie in Spanish and English, which was complied by the English lexicographer John Minsheu:

Birdes of a feather will flocke togither

The expression appears to have surfaced in the 16th century, allegedly a literal translation of Plato’s Republic via Benjamin Jowett:

Men of my age flock together; we are birds of a feather, as the old proverb says.

In nature, birds of a single species do in fact frequently form flocks. Ornithologists explain this behaviour as a ‘safety in numbers’ tactic to reduce their risk of predation.

Birds Formation

In language terms, it was previously more common to refer to birds flying together than flocking together.
