Great Gray Owl

Great Gray Owls, standing over two feet tall, thanks to insulating plumage, are built for the snow. They perch quietly and nonchalantly during day and night along the edges of snow-covered meadows, using their massive facial disks to pick up the tiniest sounds of voles burrowing under several inches of snow.
