Silent Sentinel • Great Horned Owl • $100.00


As with all owls, the Great Horned Owl is a nocturnal hunter who makes use of its superior vision to zero in on moving targets. Owls eyes are fixed in their sockets, but peripheral vision is realized by its ability to rotate its head nearly all the way around. This coupled with its acute hearing and silent flight make the owl the most efficient of night hunters.

In this painting the Great Horned Owl roosts on a fence post at eventide, hungry and alert and fully prepared for his nocturnal hunt. The penetrating stare of his exceptionally sensitive eyes reflects his ability to detect prey.
