I agree and second (rather third) your suggestion :-)
A group of penguins in the water is called a raft but on land they’re called a waddle! Other names for a group of penguins include rookery, colony, and huddle.
“The early nerd catches the bird” is my favorite!
An intrusion of cockroaches. Quite an appropriate name for a group of them, especially if they’re in your home

Rookery, I believe, originally referred to a nesting colony of rooks; it was then extended to other kinds of nesting colonies.
