Great horned owls are the most widespread, commonly found owl in North America, living almost everywhere from our most remote wild areas to urban parks. Mark’s talk will cover how he found these owls in Forest Park, basic facts about the species, and the different behaviors he has been able to see and document including hooting, hunting, mating, and rearing of young, with photos and videos to illustrate these behaviors.  Watch as one of our top and most adaptable predators comes to vivid life.
