A Great Horned Owl sat on the ground directly in front of our cabin for 20 minutes as we quietly watched in the fading light. It was almost cat-like, comfortable on the ground, head rotating considerably more than 180 degrees, and waiting. Those "ears" are plumicorns, feather tufts having nothing to do with hearing, but they twitch like cats' ears.
