Thrifted Flocks and Chatters of BudgiesMonday, November 11, 2013
There's a certain poetry to the collective nouns of birds. A chatter of budgies or even a chattering. The canaries, I have been told, like to hang out in an aria or even an opera. It has me wondering what names I would choose if given a chance to name, say, a group of collectors, sewers or thrifters? Given a weakness for simple alliteration I'm thinking perhaps a clutter of collectors, skein of sewers, and throng of thrifters.
