Denver Weather: Strong Cold Front To Bring Severe Storms, Mountain Snow
DENVER (CBS4) – Get ready for a pretty wild weather ride just in time for the first full weekend of summer. The new season will officially arrive at 9:54 a.m. on Friday but it will feel more like early spring or late fall!

a riot of robins
a rouge of robins
a ruby of robins
a rabble of robins
a red of robbins
a squabble of robins
a rash of robins
a hood of robins


I may have to go with a reliant of robins because:

Let's Just Have a Pet Peeve Thread

My pet peeve: people walking their dog with one of those retractable leashes that are only meant for training purposes. Dude, you aren't supposed to let your dog run around on a 30' leash!
