In the comics, the Birds of Prey have taken on many forms.
It is the apocalyptic story of a northern California coastal town filled with an onslaught of seemingly unexplained, arbitrary and chaotic attacks of ordinary birds - not birds of prey. Ungrammatical advertising campaigns emphasized: Hundreds of birds gulls, ravens, and crows were trained for use in some of the scenes, while mechanical birds and animations were employed for others.
The typical Hitchcock MacGuffin was the question: Why do the strange attacks occur? Thousands of disoriented seagulls suicidally flew into houses along the Monterey Bay coast line, further south of San Francisco.
The acid caused bird brain damage, or at the least, created confusion, dizzyness and seizures. The acid had possibly come from leaky domestic septic tanks in the area rather than from suspected farm fertilizers.
But the film cannot solely be interpreted in a scientific manner, because as the actors in the film discover in the long discussion scene in the Tides Restaurant, there is no solid, rational reason why the birds are attacking. The attacks are mysteriously related to the mother and son relationship in the film - anger and fears of abandonment or being left lonely of the jealous, initially hostile mother come to the surface surface when her bachelor son brings home an attractive young woman.
Curiously, the first attack has symbolic phallic undertones - it occurs when the man and woman approach toward each other outside the restaurant in the coastal town.
On an allegorical level, the birds in the film are the physical embodiment and exteriorization of unleashed, disturbing, shattering forces that threaten all of humanity those threatened in the film include schoolchildren, a defenseless farmer, bystanders, a schoolteacher, etc.
The action of the film occurs over a five-day period, from a Friday through a Tuesday morning. However, one look upward and she becomes uneasy as she sees ominous, menacing swarms of seagulls beginning to darken the sky.
Inside the shop, caged birds in ornamental cages are screeching and cheeping. On the upstairs second floor where the squawking increases in volume, Melanie Daniels Tippi Hedren asks the fussy shopkeeper Mrs. MacGruder Ruth McDevitt about the phenomenon she witnessed outside: Have you ever seen so many gulls?
What do you suppose it is? Well, there must be a storm at sea. That can drive them inland, you know. Yes, I understand there are different varieties. Oh yes there are. No, of course not. Do you happen to have a pair of birds that are just friendly?
The playgirl walks around the store searching for a cage containing lovebirds, but he demonstrates that he is more of an expert: She counters, explaining how chaos sexual would be unleashed upon the orderly world if they were released - besides, birds have always been caged, eaten, shot, and abused throughout human history: No, I suppose not.
Is there an ornithological reason for keeping them in separate cages?
Are they moulting now? Some of them are. How can you tell? Well, they get a sort of hang-dog expression. When he asks to "see" a canary and outstretches his hand, she obliges him, but accidentally releases the bird into the air - a foreshadowing of the unleashing of birds later in the film.
When the bird lands in an ashtray, Mitch covers it with his hat and slips it back into its cage, remarking that she is a pampered bird that is imprisoned: Back in your gilded cage, Melanie Daniels. When she is personally affronted by the sarcastic, denigrating remark, he responds, "I was merely drawing a parallel," and explains to the perplexed lady how he knows her name - from a courtroom appearance after a destructive, expensive practical joke.
