Great Grey Owl (47) (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2741)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - I don't usually post multiple shots of the same species but this photo shows an interesting aspect of GGOW biology. Note the slender branch the bird is perched on and that it is barely bending.The owl weighs only about 1.1 kg which does not seem to match its very large size. This is our largest owl but the bird is a big ball of feathers. By comparison, a Snowy weighs about 2 kg. The photo was taken on a tripod after sunset on a cloudy day with little light left. Very slow shutter speed.
