Collective noun for Pigeon I googled and found out that there are a few collective nouns for pigeon: a loft of pigeon; a flock/flight of pigeon; a kit of pigeon. it explains "a kit of pigeon" referring to a group of pigeon when flying together. I would like to write about a group pigeons wandering on the street. which collective noun should i use?

I would use "bunch of pigeons", "group of pigeons", or "flock of pigeons". "Loft of pigeons" and "kit of pigeons" is not commonly used in speech.

"Flock of pigeons" is the only one I've heard.

Some collective nouns aren't commonly used. I've never heard one for pigeons before!
