9781908473028: A Filth of Starlings: A Compilation of Bird Collective Nouns

A compilation of bird collective nouns with a modern, contemporary and fresh design approach


A flock of geese, a murder of crows, a parliament of owls: these are some of the bird collective nouns you may already know. But have you heard of a bouquet of pheasants, a chime of wrens, or a circus of puffins? Would you like to get down with a party of jays, go for a swim with a paddle of ducks, or go over the game plan with a huddle of penguins? Then turn the pages of this book to discover a collection of lesser-known and sometimes more fanciful avian collective nouns. Illustrated with bold, punchy shapes and colors that are powerful to the eye and the mind, the first edition of this engaging title was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award.
