A convocation of eagles, a pitying of turtledoves, a murder of crows, a charm of goldfinches, a rafter of turkeys, a deceit of lapwings, a puddling of mallards, a descent of woodpeckers, a mustering of storks, a herd of wrens, a tiding of magpies, an ostentation of peacocks, a tribe of sparrows, a siege of bitterns, and a peep of chickens. - Glossary of Provincial Words Used in Herefordshire, G. C. Lewis

The illustration is A Murder of Crows by Gary at Karmasoup.
