I’m more interested in what to call these post-breeding assemblages of mostly 
unrelated individuals, which I guess are about sharing the task of watching for 
predators while feeding and roosting. In German the word is  
“gesellungsverband”, if I read aright. “Survival group” seems to be the usual 
translation, but I wonder if something more colorful isn’t hiding somewhere in 
the English language?
