"The Birds" is a famous novelette by Daphne du Maurier, first published in her 1952 collection The Apple Tree. It is the story of a farmhand and his family who are attacked by a massive number of birds. It is set in Britain, on the Cornish coast shortly after the end of World War II.

The story was the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock's film of the same name, released in 1963, the same year that The Apple Tree was reprinted as The Birds and Other Stories.
