Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

It’s fall break and the turkeys are gathering…

We went for a walk around the nature trail at Filoli Historic House and Gardens a week or so ago, and ran into an enormous-to-us gang of turkeys. Much of the rest of our walk was taken up by speculating on collective nouns for turkey swarms – are they a flock, a gaggle, a gobble, a posse, or a herd?

Whatever word you use to describe your turkey collective, I hope you have some time to relax and enjoy the company of your favorite people this week.
