Great Grey Owl
The Great Grey Owl or Lapland Owl is a large owl that lives across the northern hemisphere. They have a big round head with grey face, yellow eyes with circles around them, light streaked underparts and darker upperparts with pale bars.
The greatest threat to Great Grey Owls is the harvest of timber from the bird's habitat. It is the provincial bird of Manitoba, Canada.
Details & Statistics
The Great Grey Owl is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2015 by BirdLife International. This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (extent of occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be fluctuating, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size is very large, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
