a randomness of paradise birds [May. 21st, 2008|01:41 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |frances england - fascinating creatures]


an obstinacy of buffalo
a murder of crows
a siege of herons
a pandemonium of parrots
a mumuration of starlings


who invented collective nouns for groups of animals anyway?
the best bet seems to be pretty bird based,
so i suspect it was a twitcher of some description.


a respite of doves
a flutter of bats
a briefing of platypus?
(or is it platypii?)
a can of rats. perhaps.
