Since childhood I have liked watching animals, especially when they are gathered in groups. I knew the most common names for animal groups like a herd of cows, or a covey of quail, or a pride of lions. I was fascinated to see how each group appeared to develop a certain order of responsibility and gave each member a specific role.

Years later when a family friend was going out of town I agreed to care for her two ferrets. While watching the adorable balls of fur scurry about I began to wonder what a group of ferrets was called. Internet research revealed a most fitting name, a business of ferrets.

That spiked my curiosity about other animal group names. I was surprised how appropriately the animal group names described their characteristics. Thus, was born So Big & Little Bit Adventures ™ in “Herds of Birds, Oh How Absurd”.
