This is Ontario Canada. Temperature 5 to 30 degrees. The Great Gray Owl lives in the Boreal Forest, and is seldom seen. It feeds exlusively on voles, and this year they are scarce so the Owls had to move or starve. That's why there in Ontario. There main weapon is their talons, and they use their beaks to pinch the voles neck, before they feed on it. They have the ability to sense movement two feet under the snow, locate and catch their prey.
