Tall, silent, with curving "horns" and stern-looking, yellow eyes, the GREAT HORNED OWL possesses a disturbing beauty. At night, in the dark when we have trouble seeing, he startles us with a sudden, "Who-who-whoooo!" And we are glad we are not smaller than he. This magnificently crafted puppet features feather-like plush, movable wings, a rotating head and blinking eyes.
The Great Horned Owl (scientific name Bubo virginianus) is a sizable owl indigenous to much of the New World, including Central, North, and South America alike. ... They are considered the heaviest owls in South and Central America, despite wide variations observed in their weight and length.
