I was thinking more along the line of the house in session. Ever watched them?

I did see a bunch of wild turkeys near Portage la Prairie. What would you call that?
Gaggle, nope, herd, nope, pod, nope, flock, nope. 

Wild Turkey?  A "sir-john" (A. McDonald?!!) lol

Maybe it should be a tuggle instead of a gaggle!

Went to Brandon today and took a look round the McKenzie seed building but didn't see anything but a bunch of pigeons looking quite harassed. You rock falcons!!

Gaggle, nope, herd, nope, pod, nope, flock, nope.  Classifications do come to mind but political comments are inappropriate I suppose.
A lot of snow is gone and tons of geese coming back. I seem to see everything but the falcons. I guess the term big L fits.
Big sigh but not defeated yet.
