Is an owl - that is as much as I know.

Any one able to identify it properly?
Can be found here.

Thanks

Looks like a long-eared owl.

Without a hint of facetiousness.

Having looked that up, looks like you are right.
I will stop referring to it as the banjo playing owl in the cabin in the hills Smile

Thanks

Possibly

Would not say it is a long-eared owl from the face even though they are natives of region.

Great horned was my first impression but then edited it after the conviction it was a long eared.

It looks like an Eagle Owl to me - those large yellow eyes, but I don't know if it is indigenous to the region. The face is wrong for a LE Owl.

Looks more like a Great Grey with it's ears up.

Could be a Great Horned Owl . They are native to N. America.

Wrong coloured eyes for an Eagle owl but the right colour for a Great Gray Owl however, markings are not that of a Great Gray (see my photo here )

Following on - I'd opt for the Great Horned......

Also Great Grey does not have those sort of "ears", as per my original post my suspicion is a Great Horned, but not seen one for a while (captive) and light on image is not good to see 100% clearly.

I would think Great Horned unless someone knows for sure.

Good link Barrie, I resisted linking to a LEO Wink
