Did you know that a group of Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) is called a Murmuration? Thanks to a dear friend out West, I learned that The Washington Post recently linked to a Sophie Windsor Clive’s fabulous video that captured a murmuration of starlings.
The Post also informs the curious of other collective nouns used to describe birds: “A parliament of owls. A nye of pheasants. An unkindness of ravens.”
