Great Grey Owl


4 September 1998, Finland
design: E Brunn

Maybe the owl I saw last summer in France was this Great Grey Owl, as I saw a kind of white face?  But this type of owl lives in Northern areas and is very large – it is also threatened in numbers.  In fact, what I saw was the more common Barn Owl – and its face is featured in this stamp.
