The Birds ending is one of my favourite movie endings, whenever I watch it I end up with a mix of tension and a strange feeling of paranoia. I somehow think the original ending would have destroyed this feeling, of course solely based on the video description.

The fact that it ends with the slow and frightened walk from the house to the car shows the power and control of the birds, they don’t run away the birds allow them to leave. Nevertheless I would love to watch the original ending.
