Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Birds of a Feather Flock Together (people of the same type seem to gather together)
- I haven’t seen Mark lately. Do you know where he’s been?
- As far as I know, he’s still hanging around with those rock musicians. He’s been attending their rehearsals, hoping to pick up a few pointers.
- Birds of a feather flock together. I know he wants to start his own group, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that he hasn’t had much time for his buddies. Still I’d like to hear from him just to see how it’s going.
- People with the same interests tend to associate with each other. But I agree with you; that’s no excuse for not keeping in touch with old friends.
