Great Horned Owl

The name of the Great Horned Owl comes from their large tufts (not use for hearing). They weigh approximately 4 pounds and have a 4-foot wingspan. They can fly up to 40 mph and eat a variety of 250 different prey species. Next time, when your hiking through the woods, listen for their distinctive call that consists of 4-5 deep hoots. I like their nickname... the Tigers of the Sky.
