What Is The Collective Noun For Red Kites?

Red Kite

We get asked this question a lot and although many other groups of birds are known by their collective nouns, it appears there isn’t an official noun for a group of red kites.

Some people will refer to a group of red kites as a wake which is the same as the collective noun for buzzards. Other unofficial terms include ‘husk’, ‘kettle’ and ‘soar’.
