A squad of squid.

No, that's not the official collective noun.  But usage sets meaning, and the linguistic crime 'shoal of squid' can be corrected.

Squad.  It's a squad of squid.

Also...

poopyhead: A Murder of Crows


Yep, a couple weeks ago the five that hang out around our house took on a redtail hawk. It decided to spilt, but the crows followed and knocked it out of the air. Then they flew back to our trees.  I couldn't see how the hawk did, but it's never been back.
