The Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) is the best-known owl in North America. It is found in many places and instead of building its own nest will use the nest left by other large birds such as a hawk or a crow. The Great Horned Owl is a skilled night hunter with very powerful talons and a very sharp bill. It feeds on rabbits, squirrels, geese, skunks and snakes. It is rarely seen during the day.
