Great Grey Owl

Strix nebulosa

Notes:

This owl appears to have something wrong with her left eye. In the 20 minutes I was taking photos it only opened that eye once and it seems to only open partially almost like a lazy eye. It did not seem to be a fresh injury but it's possibly an old healed injury.

That is common with Owls. The eye is most likely fine. https://www.pinterest.com/brentonstrine/...
