    Well, first I would research the type of bird, snake, and maybe the name of the river. In general, a bird represents: flight, broad horizons, or free spirited nature. Snakes are frequently or always for deception. Rivers are the most complex; they represent life, renewal, travel, water, cleansing, and even death. You must choose the context as it is your homework. Good luck. B

    That depends on the observer.
    I don't wish to sound mean, but actually reading the book should answer your questions.
