    Cool, did you also know that owls eyes do not move, if they want to see to the side or up or down they have to turn their whole head

    I guess that's how it's prey feels right before it scoops them up. The claws opening up are freaky.

    I used to work at Home Depot in the high country in Arizona. I helped open a new store and right after the rafters were erected two Great Horned owls showed up. They made HD their new home! Every year in the Spring they would mate and have 2 or 3 babies, and then disappear in the summer. In the Fall they would return to exact same rafter.
    Seeing the male take off to go hunt for mice or rabbits and bring it back to the female was incredible. Wingspan had to be at least 5 foot across.
    HD was very good about not disturbing them and roped off an entire isle when the babies were starting to learn to fly.

    A couple pics I took......

    that was "OWLsome", now imagine that bird is as big as an elephant, I'm pretty sure people will be eaten by them every day.
