An Owl Giveaway for One Wise Winner

 Lookie! Fresh out of the kiln, a grouping of Owl Pendants!  All but one of these were for orders and they are all packed up and ready to fly away to their new homes.  The Round Owl with the sandy brown is the only one left, as I made her as a sample for the website.  I thought after I took her picture, I would do a fun little giveaway!

To enter, comment at the original post here with the answer to this question:  What is a grouping of Owls called? 

I have enabled comment moderation, so no copying answers! I will pick one random winner from the correct answers on Saturday morning, when I post my next Song Lore post about birds!  Good luck~

  9. I love those owls. I haven't decided which one to order yet! I'd get the whole PARLIAMENT of them if I could justify it! :-D I love your work and I love your blog. I had to pass up a FREE ceramics kiln a few months ago and it haunts me every day. Thanks for blogging and thank you for making such great things.

  17. A group of owls is called a parliament...the better question is why that term applies to multiple owls, since they aren't usually in groups. Maybe because they're supposed to be wise like ones' rulers? Who knows!? :)

  18. Hi Melanie! This wise and adorable group of owls would be called a "stare" OR a 'parliament". Of course that would call into question just how wise they are, if they are political owls since the governing body of England is called Parliament!! LOL! Thanks for all of your beautiful work, I do enjoy it so!

  22. According to the Audubon Society, either a Parliament of Owls OR a Wisdom of Owls is acceptable!

    At any rate, that's the most adorable parliament I've ever seen ;)

  32. As a Canadian (who grew up with a REAL stuffed snowy owl on the piano) I actually know that a batch of owls are called a parliament! I suppose a Brit should also know but I dare you to find one who had "Snowy" watch them play chopsticks :)

  36. I love the fat round owl. I have many owls living in the woods behind my house and enjoy listening to them and sometimes seeing them.

    A grouping of owls is called a parliament.

    When I doubled checked the spelling at I found some other info that I thought was interesting:
    bazaar, brood, congress, diss, eyrie, glaring, hooting, looming, nest, sagaciousness, stare, stooping, and wisdom.
    There are also some more specific terms I've seen, such as silence (when in flight), stable (Barn Owls), jail (Barred Owls), prohibition (Barred Owls), schizpphrenia (Hawk Owls), volery (Little Owls) and blizzard (Snowy Owls).
