An exhaltation of larks
An ascension or exultation. I like the latter better.
How about a "flight" of larks?
I have no idea ... so I'm guessing a legion? That would be alliterative :) Or maybe a sky?
Dang, I can't remember the lark's term, but I've always liked expressions like these. For example, can you imagine an army of frogs? Or how about a glaring of cats? Now that one I can imagine because my cats frequently glare at me when I try to step over them. But to get back to amphibians, how about a knob of toads? I am always left wondering how such expressions came about. Off to look up the larks.
Or maybe it's a flark. A flark of larks sounds good.
An exaltation of larks. There is a whole book about collective nouns with the title "An Exaltation of Larks".
Rattlesnake collective, anyone?
