Did you knows
Did you know that a group of owls is called a parliament (PAR-LUH-MENT).
Did you know that even though people always say owls are wise the truth is that is not scientifically true.
Your not gonna believe this but female great horned owls are larger and stronger than the males!
Your not gonna believe this either but owls have not got the foggiest idea how to build a nest!
Extra fun, fun facts
When you hear an owl hooting in the background of a movie that's the sound of a great horned owl.
A great horned owl has bright yellow eyes that are the size of tennis balls, which helps them see in the dark really well. Also, their eyes cant move in all directions like ours, but that's why they can turn their heads almost all the way around!
Weight/height and wingspan
The great horned owl is one of the larger owls. As an adult the great horned owl weighs 3.1 pounds and are 22 inches tall with a wingspan of 44 inches.
Colors and other
The color of a great horned owl is brown and tan with a bit of white, as a baby owlet great horned owls are like tiny white fluff balls!
What a great horned owl eats.
Great horned owls eat lots of things like rabbits, squirrels, waterfowl, mice, reptiles, fish, gophers, skunks, birds, snakes, frogs, porcupines, bats, weasels, woodchucks, opossums, domestic cats and sometimes other owls.
How a great horned owl catches its prey.
Great horned owls usually hunt around dusk or dawn. They can see really well in the dark because of their large oversized eyes which are the size of tennis balls. Great horned owls are sometimes called silent flyers because when they flap their wings it is silent. That's one advantage they have when hunting in the dark because owls are nocturnal. going to talk When catching their pray, they silently come up closer and closer to their prey without taking their eyes off. Then, when they have them where they want them, they lunge forward and catch their prey tightly between their talons, usually in the neck so that it kills the prey.
What eats the great horned owl?
What eats a great horned owl you want to know. It's pretty simple if you think about it. Nothing really does eat them except, remember how they sometimes eat other owls? Well, sometimes other owls eat them but otherwise nothing else really thinks that they taste good.
Where they live
What temperature they live in
The great horned owl can adapt to lots of different climates, except they would prefer a warmer climate. Fun fact time!Did you know that great horned owls are able to adapt to the widest variety of climates out of all the other owl species?

Did you know that great horned owls can not move their eyes up and down or side to side, but they can turn their heads almost completely around both ways?

Questions for you
I hope you enjoyed my prezi and learned a lot. Now, just to remind you what we learned about we are going to over it. First, I gave you my introduction, then we talked about my animals appearance. After that I told you the food eaten and acquired by. Last we learned about my animals habitat and now we are at the conclusion.
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Surprisingly great horned owls live right near us! If you have ever heard hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo-hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo, that's the sound of two great horned owls singing a song together! Also, did you know that great horned owls are the most common owl in the united states?
1.How long is the wingspan of the great horned owl?
2.Owls can move their eyes in all directions, true or false?
Your not gonna believe this!
After hearing my report I hope that when you hear the word owl you get a totally different point of view because that's what I was aiming for by teaching you about this amazing animal. Even if you thought some of the pictures were gross that's what life is. I was also hoping you would go home and tell your parents that you learned some really cool things about great horned owls today.
