Rook nest colony – rookery
Rook nest colony – rookery

A rookery is a colony of breeding animals, generally birds.[1] A rookery is generally reserved for a colony of gregarious birds. [2]

While the term rookery may have come from the nesting habits of rooks, it is not reserved for corvids. Rooks – northern-European and central-Asian members of the  crow family – nest in prominent colonies (multiple nests) at the tops of trees.[3]

The breeding grounds of colony-forming seabirds and marine mammals (true seals or sea lions) and even some turtles are also referred to[4] as rookeries.

The term "rookery" was also borrowed as a name for dense slum housing in nineteenth-century cities, especially in London.[5]

Paleontological evidence points to the existence of rookery-like colonies in the pterosaur Pterodaustro.[6]
