Great Grey Owl

There has been a Great Grey Owl in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park for a little over a week now.  This is the first time in 15 years that a Great Grey has been spotted in the park and I was luckily enough to get out of the office for an afternoon to go see him for myself.  This is why I love my job!

The Great Grey Owl typically inhabits colder areas and are rare for us to have in our park.  They are the largest owl in North America as far as height and wingspan and are fairly active during the day, which was nice for all of us who wanted to see it for ourselves.

Below are a few photos I captured of this wonderful creature.  Enjoy!
