Great Grey Owl (48) (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1218) (Comments - 3162)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - After six failed attempts to be present when this bird showed, I was finally successful. It had a schedule which tended to be two to three days on and two to three days off and if you guessed wrong you'd be out of luck that day. Yesterday I guessed right. We worked with the bird for an hour at the end of the day. Each trip is 1 hr 45 minutes so it is a significant time commitment but with a result like this and a bird that you often have to back up from to shoot it was worth it. Onlookers have grown over the winter with up to 70 Saturday. We had about 20 yesterday.

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.

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa- In flight this bird has a huge wingspan. This is the same bird as the other photo but taken later in the day so the plumage appears darker and browner.

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - Based on size I think this was a male. Several birds have been seen this winter.

Canada (Ontario) Williamsburg - this individual has a very dark facial disk. The dark disk, dark around the eyes and overall darker brown plumage suggests the bird is partially melanistic. I rechecked other images and have reconsidered the bird's sex. It may have been a male after all.

Canada (Québec) Plaisance - This bird attracted attention because of the unusual amount of brown feathers around the eye. None of us has ever seen one like this before. I made the trip specifically to see it and we had some luck. I have friends who have many years experience with Great Greys and have handled both live birds and study skins. They had never come across this marking.

Great Grey Owl (48) (Strix nebulosa) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1584) (Comments - 4816)
Canada (Québec) Every bird photo contains a story behind it, along with a memory of the surroundings and environment. Each photo is different - one of the key reasons for taking more and more photos. Far from a textbook photo - which is fine - I'm happy to have finally seen this Great Gray in our Christmas Bird Count circle at Dorval, Montreal.
