OK, boring “they” need to step it up with the collective nouns on this one. I still like a “howling” or perhaps an “eclipse” would be more relevant these days. A pack of wolves on the move is called a route” or a “horde”. At any rate this howling of wolves was photographed during my wildlife workshop in April near Yosemite National Park.
