Great Grey Owl

Great Grey Owls live in the damp, mossy forests of Scandinavia and North America.

They have layers of fluffy feathers which trap warm air next to the body, insulating it from icy winds. As well as keeping them warm, owl feathers have soft fringed edges which muffle the rush of air – they fly so quietly that their prey don’t hear them swooping.

We have a young pair of owls, bred at Paignton Zoo in Devon.
