Scarecrow Thoughts

A collection of larks is an exultation of larks, a group of ravens is an unkindness of ravens, a whole bunch of eagles is a convocation of eagles, and many crows together is a murder of crows or a rowdy of crows.

What does one call an assembly of merry scarecrows convening near the doorway of a local market on a hot sunny September afternoon? Are they a gaggle, a rowdy, a bucket, a bale, a passel or a shrewdness?

These (methinks) are simply a bin, and encountering such colorful autumnal motifs prominently displayed in the village always makes my heart glad.

Hi Cate,
Just found you via Circle of the year. I love the scarecrows, how lovely to see them all to-gether like that. Because of the many lovely colours, which remeinds me of a carnival. I think they should be A Carnival of Scarecrows!
Cheers for now,
