Great Gray Owl

Great Gray Owl, Grand Teton National Park

A great gray owl roosts in Grand Teton National Park.

This great gray owl was a frequent visitor to the Moose-Wilson Road area when I was there in the spring of 2015.  It was very popular with photographers.  It was popular with scientists too.  That resulted in multiple leg bands and a radio with antenna.  Most of the time the bands and antenna were not noticeable, however, unlike the collars on wolves and grizzlies in Yellowstone.
