Great Grey Owl (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1172)
Canada (Ontario) Williamsburg - this individual has a very dark facial disk. The dark disk, dark around the eyes and overall darker brown plumage suggests the bird is partially melanistic. I rechecked other images and have reconsidered the bird's sex. It may have been a male after all.

Terrific find and capture. I haven't seen one that dark before.

It is not one of a kind but it is uncommon
