I think they are only called Eagle Owls in Europe and Horned Owls here, even though they seem to be the same bird.

Nice sharp shot with great color.

It must be a captive bird, as it does look like an Eagle Owl, which, as you imply, is not native to North America. Same Genus, different species.

And it is a great portrait.

Excellent shot Mike! Such great detail and separation from background!

Here's a shot I took last year of a Horned owl..clearly not as good as Mike's shot but neat to see the differences between the two species.

Wow! Nice detail. It's really nice to geta shot out in the open like that.

Nothing wrong with this one, either, Kent. Thanks for the comparison. Both great shots.
