Birds and Beasts.

A murder of crows
A muster of storks
An ostentation of peacocks
A parliament of owls
A party of jays
A peep of chickens
A pitying of turtle-doves
A rafter of turkeys
A siege or sedge of herons
A skein of geese [in flight]
A sord of mallards
A sounder of boars
A spring of teal
A tidings of magpies
A trip of dotterel
A busyness or feamyng of ferrets
A gaze of raccoons
A crash of rhinoceroses
A drift of swine
A wake of buzzards
A deceit of lapwings
A descent of woodpeckers
An exaltation of larks
A fall of woodcocks 
A dole of doves  
An unkindness of ravens
 [more]

A superfluity of nuns
and
A devastation of people.
