This species lends itself well to flying displays and whilst we usually rely on raptors, it has always been an aim to fly a large owl other than ‘Tonto’ so we have selected the Great Grey Owl. Of all the large species it is seen as the most diurnal (daytime), therefore the best suited to demonstrations. This is an eagle owl sized bird, yet is less than half the weight and it is a species we hope to breed. The call of the adult is a series of very deep, rhythmic ‘whoos’. Whilst adults are normally silent, the young may chitter, shriek or hiss.
