Great horned owl        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Great horned owls are one of the most widely distributed birds, ranging from the Arctic into southern South America.   The bird shown here perched just after sunset in a small cypress tree in Big Cypress Reserve in south Florida.   It let me take these photos before flying off.   More pictures these owls are here and here.
