宮崎ハロー英会話のミニレッスン 60: A Murmuration of Swallows

This is a cool video I found taken by two girls in Canada. It’s a “murmuration of swallows. In Japanese ‘swallow’ is 燕 (つばめ) and a group of swallows is called a ‘murmuration’. There are many collection nouns (集合名詞) in English, for example a “group of people”. Here are some more:

A flock of birds (but swallows are special-only they are a murmuration).

A herd of cows, sheep, horses.

A school of fish.

A pod of dolphins, whales.

A swarm of bees.

A pack of dogs.

Enjoy the video!
