Great Grey Owl, the flying radar
This is a 10% crop, so forgive me for the slight loss of detail. I just wanted to highlight the head of this beauty, where the hairs are positioned in a radar-like cone for maximum hearing. This highly specialized killer has other hunter traits, such as wingtips that allow for a silent flight.
The great grey owl or great gray owl 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 genus ''Strix'' 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.
