Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment per en:Swarm behaviour, "flocking" usually refers specifically to birds, and the generic term is "swarm behaviour". This would also fit with the German de:Schwarmverhalten. So I've changed the move proposal (using "Swarming" rather than "swam behaviour" to avoid US/UK spelling difference). PS An exception is sheep: it can be either "flock of sheep" or "herd of sheep"; but to my mind the latter is slightly more correct because the noun is shepherd and the activity is Category:Sheep herding. I'd be tempted to renaming the sheep category to Category:Herds of sheep. Rd232 (talk) 15:10, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
