Owls Great Horned Owl

Great Horned Owl

Bubo virginianus

adultsThe Great Horned Owl is a large species of Owl with white, yellow and gray underparts and brown upperparts. The bird has a white throat which continues further down the chest in a 'V' fashion (in some species). The iris of the Great Horned Owl is bright yellow.

The 'horns' that gave the bird its name are not horns at all, but tufts of hair.


This species of bird is not usualy attractable with feeders. We have included it on our list because of the significant number of these birds in our area.
