The Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) is the most widely distributed owl in the Americas; it ranges from Northern Canada to South America. This owl has a distinctive, haunting call of “ho-ho-hoo hoo hoo” and it’s ‘horns’ are really tufts of feathers. The Great Horned Owl can be heard (and seen if you have keen eyes) in the Botanical Gardens in Georgetown as well as in and around forest islands in the Rupununi Savannahs.
