Additionally, what do the birds represent in the birds?

In "The Birds," the birds symbolize the uninhibited and unbridled power of nature. This is shown most clearly in their violent and repeated attacks on humans.

What happened at the end of the birds?

Just, you know, birds. Hitchcock didn't even want the title card saying, "The End"; the studio tacked it on, though it's sometimes dropped in current version of the movie. The film ends with the birds in possession of the field, and the humans slinking off, hoping they'll be allowed to escape.
