“A Rafter of Turkeys” Paintings by Portia Hein
My friend, Aggie More, once gave me a beautifully illustrated book about collective nouns. There are so many wonderful words to describe everything beyond a pair. A “dray” of squirrels, a “coven” of witches, a “gaggle” of geese, an “ambush” of tigers, a “malapertness” of peddlers, a “sneer” of butlers, a “cloud” of gnats, a “rake” of colts, a “clew” of worms, a “fall” of lambs, a “goring” of butchers, and the list goes on. Do click on this link to see more.
My personal favorites is, a “parliament” of owls. My interest in ornithology is growing, and raptors are among the more regal of our feathered friends. Portia Hein’s work also soars.
