One more observation we noticed while editing photos: The Great Gray Owl is
our largest owl but weighs about half of a Snowy Owl. When we first saw a
Gray from about 250 feet away and 30' high we were across the river (and not
even on the refuge yet) 

I digiscoped a long distance photo for documentation. This Gray Owl appeared
to be suspended in midair..but as the photo shows it is on a twig about 3mm
thick and seemed to float almost weightless.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do
nothing.
