Great Grey Owl
Mixed and coniferous forest.
Mainly voles and other small mammals such as mice, lemmings and occasionally squirrels.
The great grey owl hunts mainly during the day. They carry all but the largest prey in their beaks and swallow it whole, head first. Bones, fur, teeth and other waste are brought up again (regurgitated) in the form of pellets.
They sometimes adopt old crows' nests but may build their own on the ground or on a tree stump. 1 - 9 eggs are incubated for 30 days.
