'Great Gray Owl' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

 

The great gray owl, Stryx nebulosa, also known as The Phantom of the North, is a very large gray to grayish-brown owl found throughout the northern hemisphere. Great gray owls breed in the dense coniferous forests of the north and feed primarily on small rodents. They can locate mice under the snow through their excellent hearing and then plunging down through the snow to capture them. While mostly active at night, they can also be seen during the day.

Great gray owls are long-lived birds, with captive individuals reaching 40 years of age. The great gray owl is the provincial bird of Manitoba.
