What do hundreds of black birds mean?
If you see hundreds of black birds, that generally means there is black bird food near by. Not all naturally occurring phenomenon are to be interpreted as omens. A large flock of black birds is one such occurrence. Birds of this sort tend to flock together where and when it is advantageous to them. An abundant food source, and good nesting areas tend to have flocks of them about and in some instances it is a seasonal reason, such as mating season or they are getting ready to migrate. It might even be that Alfred Hitchcock has been reincarnated and has sent out a casting call for a remake of "the Birds. Sorry, sometimes my sense of humour runs to the weird.

When hundreds of birds gather in trees at sunset and chirp loud what does it mean?
Not all naturally occurring phenomenon can or should be interpreted as an omen. I believe this is one such time. In nature birds in large numbers commonly flock together. When the flock is too large to roost in a single tree they often settle in several trees. The noise they make on landing is to establish the whereabouts of flock members, to reassure those out of sight with others that the flock is still together and in some cases to pass information along to one another. Humankind is not the only creature of this world who likes to be surrounded by the comforting noises of their family and community.
