'Du Maurier, who wrote the short story The Birds, tells us that the birds are trying to destroy human life, but we never know what is making them do it. Is it really the weather, as some characters in the story think? Is it an evil force? Suppose you're a historian at some future time studying this famous bird attack. Write a feature article summing up the main events on the historical disaster and offering some possible reasons for the birds' frenzy. Be sure to tell why the murderous birds didn't succeed in wiping out the world. It should be atleast one paragraph long.'

I realllyyy need help writing this; I've been stuck for a long time! I have the story in front of me..but I need some ideas on why the birds didn't wipe out the world and what made them behave the way they did...I can sum up the main events of the story myself. Please Please Help!!!

Thanks

    Perhaps the birds went into a frenzy after eating highly intoxicating berries or a fungus.

    The symbolism in this story is to reflect the Cold War with Russia. The story states that there was a "cold east wind" which was exciting the birds.
