Smudge the Great Grey Owl

(Strix nebulosa)

About Smudge

Smudge was kept as part of a private collection of owls, but found it difficult to settle as the aviary he was kept in was too small. When Smudge came to us at Hoots Hollows, he eventually started to relax and become more content. Smudge is beautiful to look at, but still prefers to keep his distance from people. If you listen closely you might hear him make a high-pitched shrill sound, something you wouldn't expect of such a large owl!
