A group of lions is called a "Pride" and a group of fish are called a "School."  Crows a "Murder."....
What do you call a group of kites?

 I always thought quiver referred to the bag or container that held the kites.

Mass Ascension at kite festivals. Stack or arch if kites on one line.

Team is used for a group of fliers. "Mess" of kites if kites are all tangled up on the ground  Cry, sometimes "Ballet" if kites are in the air  Wink.

A group of Swallow-tailed Kite birds is known as a "brood", "kettle", "roost", "stooping", and "string" of kites.  Cool

"Stooping" seems appropriate, especially when learning stunt kite tricks!!!  Embarrassed  Roll Eyes  Huh
