Also known as the tiger owl or the hoot owl (both for obvious reasons), great horned owls have eyes nearly the size of human eyes. Typically at peak activity during the night, these photos show a good deal of daytime activity as well (thank God, otherwise the pictures would be as dark as the background). Great horned owls can live for more than 20 years and pairs mate for life often using the same nesting site year after year.
