Fear of birds, moths and butterflies

Hi I've always wanted to write to Dr. Phil about my phobia. I've had this phobia for as long as I can remember. It's of Birds, Moths, Lady Bugs, and yes Butterflies basically anything that can fly. If no one is home to kill a moth that is in the house I'll lock myself into my room with the lights off, and wait.  It's so embarressing. I often get hurt while running and bulldozing anything in my path. I hate the sound of a flag moving in the wind b/c it sounds like wings.  There were a few days where I wouldn't go to school because my neighbour would feed the birds in the morning and they were everywhere. I remember crying a few times because I could see their shadows on my curtain and hear their awful sounds. My mother thinks this fear came from going to the duck pond as a baby. She says that my father use to chase the ducks with me in the stroller. So this explains it. But how do I learn to control this! and is there any other people who fear the same thing as I.
