A large Owl with an average wingspan of 56 in. The facial disk is used to focus sound. Yellow eyed owls are not strictly nocturnal or nocturnal & crepuscular and have the most diverse feeding habits of the Owl families.
Coniferous forests near open areas.
This Owl appeared to be completed undisturbed by my presence and was much interested in looking for its next meal.
