Great horned owl

Went with a group of photographers to the Canadian Raptor Conservancy for a raptor photo shoot.
One of the birds was a great horned owl.

The weather was miserable, raining and cold, the light was less than desireable, but the birds were great. The spots are rain drops.

Bubo virginianus

Even though the female Great Horned Owl is larger than her mate, the male has a larger voice box and a deeper voice. Pairs often call together, with audible differences in pitch.
