It's 'superb owl' Sunday
These two great grey owls look like they're ready to play, which seems fitting on Super Bowl (or 'superb owl', according to common internet typo) Sunday. Great greys are bigger than most other owls, with broad wings and a long tail. But as much of their size comes from their feathers, they are actually relative lightweights. They usually live in pine and fir forests with meadows nearby, hunting small rodents at night and avoiding areas with people. Great greys hunt by listening and watching from a perch, then swooping down on their prey, sometimes plunging into more than a foot of snow to make a diving catch.
Super Bowl LV will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, USA, beginning at 11.30pm UK time and going on until around 3am - so it's definitely one for the night owls.
