The Great Horned Owl is the most widely distributed owl in North America. It can be found in all parts of the United States, most of Canada, and even into Mexico. At 22” tall, it is just slightly taller than a Barred Owl. However, it is twice as heavy (3.2 lbs. compared to 1.6 lbs.). Notice the characteristic white bib on this bird. I’m always impressed at the size of the Great Horned Owl’s talons.
