A what of what? | A7 III and FE 70-300 G OSS

A murder of crows
A conspiracy of ravens
A clattering of jackdaws

All the birds facing the same way on the roof top here, but I couldn't make out what sort of collective I was viewing.

Howard, although northern fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis) looks similar to many gulls, they are not gulls. And based on the beak, I would say these are fulmars.

No obligatory bird picture this time despite that I have plenty of bird shot I haven't posted here yet since I aboard a train just now and the WiFi is bit on the slow side...

Hezu , I appreciate the correction! I ran the photo through the Merlin bird identifier app and it agreed with you while also suggesting the bird on the left might be a black-browed albatross (!). Iíll correct the record Ö

That feels almost painted, Fred. I guess the way the mirror lens renders improved the picture or you did a perfect job in post. Whatever the case, great picture imho

Mambo, I presume the last picture, "Mrs and Mr Tree sparrow" should be labeled as "Mrs and Mr Tree swallow".
