Great Horned Owl
Great Horned Owls are the heaviest owls in North America, and are found throughout much of the United States, even living near people. They live in forests or field edges, and are generally nocturnal. Weighing an average of three pounds, they are strong for their size and capable of hunting prey larger than themselves. Skunks, rabbits, snakes, and even cats are preyed upon by Great Horned Owls.
