Confession of the Week
I have a thing about the names for animal groupings. I think it’s the writer in me always looking for different ways to look at and add description. Or the fact I’m a word geek.
Penguins live in large groups, and there are several different names for these groups. When they group together on land, they are known as a waddle. When the group is nesting, they are called a rookery. When the group of penguins is found in the water, they are known as a raft.
