This is a Great Gray Owl and is Manitoba's Provincial Bird Emblem in 1987. It is a photograph I took in dusk in winter north of Winnipeg, in Little Deer. I then drew an abstract Great Grey Owl to go with it and combined it in the computer.
According to Wikipedia, the great grey owl or great gray owl (Strix nebulosa) is a very large owl, documented as the world's largest species of owl by length. It is distributed across the Northern Hemisphere, and it is the only species in the Strix genus found in both Eastern and Western Hemispheres. In some areas it is also called Phantom of the North, cinereous owl, spectral owl, Lapland owl, spruce owl, bearded owl, and sooty owl.
