Take a walk through the woods late at night and you might catch a glimpse of this common Illinois resident. The Great Horned owl, like others of its family, hunts for rabbits, mice and other small animals only after sundown.
This bird is subject to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and remains under the stewardship of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
