The Flock is the name for the core group of birds in the Angry Birds series. They are a group of birds who live on Piggy Island on the southwestern Pacific Ocean and fight the Bad Piggies, who continuously try to steal their eggs. The core flock leads the hundreds of other birds on the island. At least one member of the flock appears in The Original Game, Seasons, Rio, Space, Star Wars, Star Wars II, Friends, GO!, Epic, Stella, and Transformers.
The Flock originally consisted of the following five birds.
- Red is the most responsible member. He is the leader of The Flock.
- Chuck is one of Red's best friends and is a restless, enthusiastic, wild Canary.
- The Blues are the youngest and the most daring. They like to prank the rest of the flock.
- Bomb has a short temper and explodes when he loses it.
- Matilda is the most caring of all the birds. She acts motherly and cares for the Blues.
The Flock fought battles with the Pigs before any new members were added.
The "actual" flock consists of Red, The Blues, Chuck, Matilda, Bomb, and Terence, as claimed by Rovio. The other birds wander around Piggy Island (excluding Stella) and only appear when needed. (Example, Bubbles wanders looking for candy; Hal walks around camping and playing his Banjo)
The Flock's currency are coconuts. (See, Angry Birds Comics Issue 4, the Bidding War)
Expanding the Ranks
In the course of the battles with the Pigs, the Birds encountered a green bird with a big beak named Hal, who was kidnapped by the Bad Piggies. The birds freed him and he was later able to help them defeat the Pigs, save the eggs and destroy a small Pig fortress. In gratitude, he was awarded three stars and inducted as a new member. The same thing happened with Terence, the Big Brother Bird, when the Pigs kidnapped the Flock, including Hal. Terence rescued Hal, then they rescued the rest of the Flock. He was the first new member of the flock.

After several victories against the Pigs, the Flock's luck turned and they were kidnapped by the King Pig. This is witnessed by Terence. Terence set off to rescue The Flock. He first freed Hal, then defeated the Pigs and freed The Flock. Terence was awarded membership in The Flock and has been seen with them ever since.

With Terence's might and Hal's unique talent added to their ranks, The Flock was successful in repelling the Pigs attempts at stealing the eggs. One Halloween, The Blues noticed an orange bird named Bubbles, who had been kidnapped by the Pigs. They set off to rescue him, but found he was more than capable of rescuing himself. Bubbles inflated himself in the Pig's fort, therefore destroying it and made his way out. Bubbles has been seen on several adventures since and is presumed to be a full time member of The Flock.

In the course of the battles with the Pigs, The Flock has traveled to many different locations and environments, including the desert, underground caves, and beaches. The Pigs never rest in their quest to steal the eggs and the Flock often has to retrieve their eggs on Holidays and Birthday Parties.
At an indeterminate time, the Flock was captured as rare birds and taken to Rio, where they fought with Blu, Jewel, and their friends against Nigel and Mauro. Matilda, Bomb, Terence, Hal, and Bubbles Arrived after Red, Chuck, and the Blues, so it is possible they were not captured originally and made their way to Rio to rescue the team.

In addition to Rio, the team has also traveled to China twice and Japan, where they wore a variety of traditional Japanese outfits.
