Great Grey Owl - by Rick Dobson♦ A large, reclusive predator. Plunge marks in the snow are usually the only evidence for its presence. Distinctive extra-large facial disks direct sound to feather covered ear openings, providing super-sensitive hearing. This enables the great grey owl to accurately locate prey, even under two feet of snow or in a tunnel. With soft feathers, it can glide unheard from its perch to dispatch an unfortunate rodent with its sharp talons. (Look at those feet!)

The Great Grey Owl does not have ear tufts and has the largest facial disc of any raptor. (In the Harry Potter series, the Weasley's exhausted owl, Errol, is a Great Grey Owl.)
