Great Horned Owl
Photographed in the evening near Medical Lake Washington, this is one of the few times I've seen this bird and the only time I've been able to photograph it.

The huge Bubos are so impressive. I think the Great Horned Owl however is by far easier to see in the wild than European Eagle Owl. I had several encounters during our years in the States, there where even nests in metroparks the public could look at, pointed out by the park services and not kept top secret sensitive information.
