Gathering in the Animal Kingdom

A murder of crows
a shrewdness of apes
a romp of otters
a drift of pigs
a convocation of eagles
a colony of gulls
a party of jays
a parliament of owls
a gang of turkeys
an exaltation of larks
a bask of crocodiles
a nest of snakes
a business of flies
a cloud of gnats
a murmuration of starlings
a unkindness of ravens

a babble of fools
a hammer of hate-mongers
a trust of friends 
a gaggle of gossips
a logjam of bureaucrats
a confusion of witnesses
a pondering of philosophers
a count of survivors
a certainty of bigots 
a frenzy of zealots
a risk of gamblers 
a shout of protesters
a patch of vegetarians
a posturing of bullies
a mirror of conformists
a cover of liars
