Flying Tiger

Birds & wildlife

P3299802mod2

The Great Horned Owl is fearless and will attack and kill skunks, porcupines, and even small coyotes.  It has excellent hearing and can hear a mouse moving under 12 inches of snow.  It’s flight is totally silent due to ragged wing feathers that are ruffled on the ends.  Flying Tiger is a well chosen nickname for this nocturnal hunter.
