Running late with this week's question so here's an easy one! http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/tongue.gif

What do the following words all have in common?

cast, charm, exaltation, murder, mutation

All are collective nouns for groups of birds.

Cast of falcons

Charm of hummingbirds

Exaltation of larks

Murder of crows

Mutation of thrushes


Well done to Bear and Alicia who solved the question and gave me the birds associated with each collective noun.
