Great Horned Owl in Alberta, Canada (@ Wayne Lynch/Corbis)
- Say hello to the most widely-dispersed true owl in the Americas.""It is also know as Bubo virginianus or (less confusingly) the Tiger Owl
- Have you ever seen an owl asleep lying down?""In fact, have you ever seen an owl asleep standing up?
- These night-time predators can twist their heads 280°.""It\s a bit like David Attenborough directing The Exorcist but quite a lot cuter…
- Our feathered friend\s beautiful plumage is not its only distinctive quality.""It has an irresistible mating call too.
