Have Fun with These Wild and Wonderful Bird Words

A murder of crows, a charm of goldfinches, a huddle of penguins--groupings of birds are more than just a "flock." Collective nouns for specific types of birds range from fascinating to funny, and this adorable book is your guide to the best of them. Discover the surprising number of different terms, and learn their true meanings--as well as the history behind them. Did C.S. Lewis really coin the phrase, "a parliament of owls"? Find out in this colorfully designed conversation-starter. The spectacular full-color photography that accompanies each entertaining tidbit further enhances the collectability of An Asylum of Loons. You're sure to impress your friends and family with all the knowledge in this book.
