Great Horned Owlets

Bubo virginianus


Young: Downy plumage grayish to buff, with dusky barring. By about october young birds acquire a complete set of flight feathers and tail : feathers that differ in pattern, shape , and wear from those of the adult: they have broader and more numerous crossbars, wings with uniformly fresh-looking rather than variably worn flight flight feathers and tail feather tapered rather than blunt ended.
