Manitoba Provincial Bird

The Great Gray Owl

Chosen to represent Manitoba by numerous naturalists and school groups, the Great Gray Owl was officially adopted by Manitoba as the provincial bird emblem on July 16, 1987. A year- round resident of Manitoba, the Great Gray Owl is North America's largest owl, with a wingspan of 1.3 metres. It can be found throughout the mixed wood and coniferous forests of Manitoba, from the south-eastern corner of the province, west to Riding Mountain National Park and north to the treeline.
