Where does he feel most at home?

The Great horned owl loves to live in coniferous forests, but will move to different areas for food and nesting. You can find him in North- and South-America.

What's his favourite food?

During the night the Great horned owl will hunt on small rodents, birds, reptiles or invertebrates. The size of its prey varies from an insect to a skunk, rabbit or chicken.

Fun fact

This owl is a bit lazy and will use a deserted nest from a buzzard or a large cavity in a tree or building as a nesting place.
