A Pandemonium of Parrots

A Lovely Bunch Of Lovebirds

Someone wrote to me recently asking what a group of parrots is called. My first reaction was, “a flock of parrots.” That is the most common reference to them, but did you also know a group of parrots is called a pandemonium? It tells you something about the noise a wild flock of parrots can make because the definition of pandemonium is “wild uproar or noise!” (Source: American Heritage Dictionary). You can also call them a company of parrots.Here are some other interesting names for groups of birds:

A flock, a flight, a pod, or a volery of birds

A murder of crows

A dole or flight of doves

A brace, bunch, flock, or team of ducks

An aerie or convocation of eagles

A gaggle of geese

A colony of gulls

A cast of hawks

A charm of hummingbirds

A band of bluejays

A watch of nightingales

An ostentation of peacocks

A bevy or covey of quails
