Debra Plett

Thank you Clifford, I was really excited to see the owl. I caught a glimpse of the owl today but was not able to get a clear shot.

The Great Grey Owl has been the official bird for the province of Manitoba since July 16, 1987. The great grey owl is the largest owl in North America. I have enjoyed many walks in Birds Hill Park and this is the first encounter with the great grey owl. I hope that the owl is nesting in the area and not just passing through looking for food.
