          I thought we could all use a lighter touch from time to time, and this is one. Atlas Obscura is one of my favorite resources for unusual bits and pieces of information. Flocks of birds have different names, according to the type of bird; most of these colorful and unusual designations are inherited from the Euripean Middle Ages. Test your friends after you have read this!

Read…Reflect…Share!

“So you’ve spotted a bunch of birds! Congratulations! But how to tell people?”
