Great job! You know your great grey owls well!
Great gray owls primarily hunt at night or at dawn and dusk. Equipped with powerful hearing, they hunt from low perches on the edge of openings, where they can hear small rodents deep under the snow. They attack with a short or hovering flight over the opening, pouncing feet first towards their prey through the snow. Special structures on their feathers make their flight almost soundless. Their incredible stealth has earned them the name “Phantom of the North.”
