raport

This is an anagram for both parrot and raptor, so I have three guesses:

- Flipping the bird
- Kill two birds with one stone
- Birds of a feather flock together

ga me

total guess, but I'm going with waiting game

hbianrdd = btwusoh

hbianrdd is an anagram of bird hand
btwusoh is an anagram of two bush
i.e,
hbianrdd = btwusoh

So it's A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

Partial answer

  1. ga me

It’s a game of two halves

Or possibly (As @Hugh pointed out)

Get in the game

    $\begingroup$ For that one I was thinking halftime or a break(pause) in the game. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Z.Dailey Halftime is not possible for obvious reasons. 'A break in the game' has been already tried by Gamow $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know where OP lives, but I've never heard that idiom even once in my life and wouldn't think it's considered "popular." o_o $\endgroup$
