Great Gray Owl

Maybe you have heard about the Snowy Owl irruption that is going on this winter in Minnesota and other places in the lower 48, but there is also a bigger number of other northern Owls moving into northern Minnesota.

Great Gray Owls, like the one in the above photo, are in greater numbers this winter than in recent winters. The Christmas Bird Count in the famous Sax-Zim bog yielded 11 Great Grays.

The Northern Hawk Owl has also shown bigger numbers this year.
