Peters and Mrs. Hale find the birdcage hidden in the kitchen cabinets, it is a form of symbolism to the confinement Minne was experiencing in her own home. Mrs. Hale also makes a point to the men that she doesn’t communicate with her neighbor as much as she would have liked because the house “never seemed a cheerful place.” The lack of communication to those outside of her house may have lead Minnie to her decision to murder her husband.

Just like Mr. Wright killed the bird, he also “killed” his wife’s singing spirit.
