Under normal circumstances, the Autobirds would be fighting against their porcine foes the Bad Piggies (who were similarly upgraded into the Deceptihogs), but the Eggspark also transmogrified the Flock's precious eggs into Eggbots, who are trying to cyberform the whole island. So now the Autobirds must reluctantly work with their enemies to return Piggy Island to its "normal" state.
There are a lot more Autobirds than there are individual Flock members; each Flock member seems to have been duplicated, plus there are numerous "variants" of several Autobot-analogues running around. Do not think about this too much, you'll only hurt your tiny little brain for some people.
The members of the Flock have taken on the traits of Autobots from various continues. Sometimes these Autobirds are pretty direct analogues, sometimes they're "mashups" of multiple disparate incarnations.
On top of that, there are several smaller robo-buddies who have joined the team who look to be purely Cybertronian, and may in fact be the real deals.
||The Blues as:
- Early images of the Autobird insignia have a swollen right cheek for whatever reason.
- The tiny birds who act as "Accessory" characters may be "Hatchlings", baby birds who appear in various other Angry Birds media.
