Sedge of Cranes (also Bitterns)

Convocation of Eagles

(Tok, Bazzar and Mutation are not found in my source; Hints and Things)

mutation of thrushes

baazar of guillemots

sedge of bitterns or cranes

Tok no idea

"Tok" is one of a few collective nouns for a group of Grouse.

Tok: Capercaillies or Grouse
Sedge: Bitterns, Cranes, Dunkadoos or Herons 
Bazaar: Falcons, Guillemots, Murres, Owls or Ravens
Mutation: Thrushers

Got all this from Collective Nouns for Birds on the New Zealand Birds site. The list starts as it means to go on with a "diacriticality of accntors" and carries on in similar vein until it gets to an "incontinence of yellowlegs".

I just wonder what the collective noun is for people who think up names like this for collective nouns.
