Great Horned Owls are referred to as “the tiger of the sky” because of their keen hunting skills and their ability to capture a wide variety of prey sometimes larger or heavier than the owls themselves.
The Great-horned Owl is one of the few species that preys on skunks on regular basis.
The adult Great-horned Owl can be quite vocal, with a deep, but loud “hoo-hoo-hoo hoo hoo.”
The young may stay in their parents’ territory for 6 months while they learn how to become skilled and successful hunters.
