Great Horned Owl

It’s widespread and numerous, but the Great Horned Owl is anything but common: Large, fierce, and distinctive for its hornlike tufts of feathers, this watchful raptor is sometimes called “the tiger of the sky” for its power and efficiency in taking its prey.

When you adopt a Great Horned Owl, you support Audubon’s conservation work to protect birds and the places they need. You’ll receive:

  • A lifelike plush Great Horned Owl that plays a recording of its call when squeezed
  • Adoption certificate and personalized letter from Audubon CEO, David Yarnold
