The great horned owl, also known as the tiger owl or the hoot owl, is a large owl native to the Americas. It is an extremely powerful and adaptable bird of prey with a vast range widely distributed in the Americas. With a diet which primary appears to be rabbits and hares, rats and mice and voles, it freely hunts any animal it can overtake, primarily other rodents and small mammals, but also larger mid-sized mammals, various birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.
The great horned owl is one of the earliest nesting birds in North America, often laying eggs weeks or even months before other raptorial birds. 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.
