Great Horned Owl

The Great Horned Owl is a large owl native to North and South America. It is an adaptable bird with a vast range, though it is not as widespread as the Barn Owl.

Generally, the largest owls are found closer to the Polar regions and the smallest owls are found closer to the Equator, while females are larger than males. Adults have large ear tufts, a reddish, brown or gray face and a white patch on the throat. The iris is yellow. The ear tufts are not actually ears, but simply tufts of feathers.
