bird cams: risks include falls
A powerful and adaptable bird of prey, the Great Horned Owl has the most extensive range, the widest prey base and the most variable nesting sites of any American owl. Its large yellow eyes, pronounced ear tufts, and white bib distinguish the Great Horned Owl from related species, especially once its unmistakable multi-tone hoot is heard.
Silently gliding from perch to perch, the Great Horned Owl hunts easily after dark. While perched and ready to pounce, the Great Horned Owl is robustly equipped with excellent eyesight, the ability to swivel its head more than 180 degrees, and an acute sense of hearing to locate its prey.
Regularly consuming small mammals, Great Horned Owls are also known to eat fish and even large prey such as other owls or raptorial birds.
