Here is some general information on the great horned owl.
The Great Horned Owl, Bubo
virginianus, is a large owl native to North and South America. It is an adaptable bird
with a vast range, though it is not as widespread as the Barn Owl.
Individuals range in length from 46 to 68 cm (18 to 27 inches) and have a wingspan of 101
to 153 cm (40 to 60.5 inches). An average Great Horned Owl is 55 cm (22 inches) long, has
a wingspan of 124 cm (49 inches) and weighs about 1400 grams (3.1 lbs).
Great Horned Owls are some of the earliest-breeding birds in North America. They breed in
late January or early February and are often heard calling to each other in the fall,
starting in October.
