    Description

    The breeding range of great gray owls (Strix nebulosa) in the United States includes portions of Alaska, mountains in the western United States including portions of the Cascades and Sierra Nevada ranges and the northern Rockies, and portions of Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, and New York (see Chapter 14 and Map 3). The species is sometimes observed in more southerly states during severe winters. Based on the species' documented distribution (see National Geographic Society 1987, Johnsgard 1988, and others), the owl may occur on National Forests across seven Regions. To document the management status of great gray owls throughout its range we queried management personnel on all National Forests where the species is likely to occur.
