Elsie was a female barred owl (Strix varia) and a nurse from the Great Ga'Hoole Tree.
Elsie was a kindly old owl, who took care of the young owlets saved by the Guardians. Matron and she flew to the gathering station, although they had never done it before. Elsie plucked out some her downy fluff to make a nest for an owlet.
