What do Bosch's bird demons signify? I understand that they are some kind of egos, but no more at the time.

Birds relate to the element air, the Sephirah Netzach, the lunar mind (since thoughts have an aerial nature).

Dark-colored, attacking birds signify negative thoughts within the internal worlds, since thoughts "fly," hence the symbolic association with the mind.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
