Great Horned Owl Fight

Harriet Thiele Statz of Waunakee sent this incredible photograph (taken by her husband, Ray) showing a pair of Great Horned Owls engaged in a serious dispute:

"My husband, Ray Statz, took it near our shop in Waunakee on November 29th. The two Great Horned Owls were locked in combat for about half an hour."

Great Horned Owls are very territorial and as Ray’s awesome photograph demonstrates, they’ll even fight one another to protect their home turf.

Thanks for the amazing photo!
