Flock, Covey, or Gaggle

Need a fun project to do with your kids? Ask them to search the web (or books) to figure out which groups of birds are flocks, which are covey, and which are a gaggle. Are there other names we assign to groups of birds? Feel free to comment here and let other readers know.

“Birds of a feather flock together.”

Know other bird proverbs?
