Nebula the Great Grey Owl

 

Meet Nebula

Nebula was bred in captivity at a zoo in Quebec and joined the Mountsberg Raptor Centre in 2019 when she was one year old. As a northern bird, Nebula is most comfortable spending the warmer months living inside the climate-controlled building of the Raptor Centre, however she does make appearances in our public and school programs.

The Great Grey Owl

Favourite snacks: Small mammals including voles, mice, chipmunks and lemmings
Interesting facts: Although it is the tallest owl species in Ontario, the Great Grey Owl is much lighter than both the Snowy and Great Horned Owls – it’s all feathers! Great Grey Owls have asymmetrical ear openings and a very large facial disk which allows them to hear the faintest sounds and grab voles under a layer of snow and ice without ever seeing them.
