More Siblings

These White Owls are a custom order for one of my new customers, who was brave enough to indulge me and my current obsession with plush families. So instead of making her two White Owls (on the left), I made her White Owl and White Owl's whiter sister.


Oh, and did you know that a group of owls is called a parliament? At least according to a piece of trivia I stumbled upon while mindlessly surfing (something I do when I need to clear my head). Interesting way to call a flock of birds. Do you think owls meet up in suits and hold debates nobody else but themselves understand?

I love the owls! And I am sure that the person ordering them will love them too! I knew that a group of owls wasn't anything normal but didn't realise it was parliament.
Check out this list for group names of birds...

It's got a siege of herons; a charm of finches; and a murmuration of starlings! What great names!

An exaltation of larks, an unkindness of ravens, and, yes, the murmuration of starlings -- wow, so poetic! Thank you so much for the link, Di. I love discovering things like that.
