An Exaltation of Larks: The Ultimate Edition

An Exaltation of Larks: The Ultimate Edition by James Lipton

A book for people who've mastered such basics as a pride of lions and want to go onward. To a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, or a truelove of doves.

You can have your pick for cats: clowder, cluster, and clutter are all recorded. Though some have distinctions: it is a gaggle of geese on the grounds, but a skein of geese in the air.

Some are more fun than others, and he includes a long section with possibilities for new ones.
