It is quite an adaptable bird and is the most widely distributed true owl in the Americas.

  • Length: 20 inches Wingspan: 55 inches
  • Sexes similar
  • Very large owl with prominent ear tufts
  • Yellow eyes and dark bill
  • Upperparts mottled brown, gray, and black
  • Pale underparts with fine brown bars
  • Reddish-brown facial disks bordered by black with a lower border of white

Similar species:
Only the Long-eared Owl shares the red facial disks and prominent ear tufts, but is much smaller and slenderer, is barred and streaked on the belly, lacks the white throat, and has its ear tufts set closer together.

The Great Horned Owl has a wide range and a vast range and is the most widely distributed true owl in the Americas.

Owls have spectacular binocular vision allowing them to pinpoint prey and see in low light. The eyes of Great Horned Owls are nearly as large as those of humans.

An owl’s hearing is as good – if not better – than its vision; they have better depth perception and better perception of sound elevation (up-down direction) than humans.
