I love this one, the tenth window in Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar. It's only small - the transom window above the front door of a house on Rhodes Street - but I think it's really imaginative and rather sweet. Some of the owls look like mere babies, but it put me in mind of this quote:
'A wise old owl sat on an oak; the more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard; why aren't we like that wise old bird?'
And - ha! - did you know the collective name for a group of owls is a parliament?!
