Now know why Great Horned Owls don't make nests, they let Red-Tailed Hawks do it for them...8^)

Cool video. That hawk shoulda kept dive bombing and harassing him.

You mean it isn't Disneyland out there? I thought they’d be sharing the nest?

Spike.......it would amaze you at how little a Great Horned Owl weighs. They are practically all feathers.

I had a nest behind my house - crazy what all mama would feed her chicks. I would take a peek around the base of the tree on occasion just to see what she’d killed lately. An adult hen turkey and a barn owl were the two most impressive kills. One badass bird!

Yep. Every where these birds go, competing species decline.

Go to Pruitt Reservoir. Eagles everywhere.

Onondaga Lake has 40 some odd eagles hanging out, right next to Syracuse. We saw two yesterday on a huge nest near Canadarago Lake. Raptors are everywhere around here. Including GHO.

I saw a similar video several years ago of a Great Horned Owl kicking the crap out of a Bald Eagle. The Eagle died.
