The flattened facial disk of the great horned owl funnels sound to the bird’s ears, which magnify it as much as ten times to help the bird hear noises humans can’t detect.
The great horned owl’s eyes are supported by bony eye sockets; they cannot turn their eyes but instead rotate their heads up to 270 degrees.
Great horned owls are one of the only species who will occasionally eat a skunk.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
