Rare footage of the elusive great gray owl

On a snowy February day outside Delta Junction, Alaska, this couple were fortunate enough to witness a beautiful creature, the Great Gray Owl. This Strix Nebulosa (it's scientific name) is very elusive. They are not easily called in by recorded owl calls. They also are not as easily scared by human activity and will often be still and observe humans, who many times are unaware they are close by. They are the largest owl by length in the world. You can see in the video it often looks directly at the people filming, but does not seem greatly disturbed by it. How fortunate to have this creature so close and accessible. Sit back and enjoy watching this magnificent creature as the snow gently falls all around it!
