Great Grey Owl

Great grey owls feed mainly on small rodents, and are able to accurately locate prey under two feet of snow.

They can be found in dense coniferous forests across much of the northern hemisphere. Great grey owls have the largest facial disk of any bird of prey and are the longest owl from head to tail feather. When food is scarce the female Great grey owl will starve in order to feed her chicks, and may lose up to a third of her body weight.

DID YOU KNOW? Great grey owls will travel vast distances when local prey is scarce.
