Great Horned Owl


This Great Horned Owl has been spotted on and off throughout the summer, at the George Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, and seems to have taken up residence in the area for the long haul. Usually Great Horned and Northern Saw-Whet owls visit the sanctuary during cold stretches during the late fall and the winter months. Having this Great Horned Owl stay in the sanctuary long term is a treat.
