Great Horned Owlets

Great Horned owlets (Bubo virginiarius)
The great horned owl is the largest "eared" and best known common owl.  It hunts during the day, watching for prey from its low perch.  Its diet consists of rabbits, rodents and small birds.  It is one of the first birds to lay its eggs, which can be as early as late January.
