A small, stocky bird, with tail often raised, it belongs to the Wood-Warbler family. Both male and female have a plain olive upperside, rounded tail, and low flight. The black mask of the adult male distinguishes it from other Warblers.
The owl most commonly seen on the Peninsula, the Great Horned like most owls sleeps during the day, usually well-hidden high up in the trees, and comes out at night foraging for mammals like rabbits and skunks. It's large, similar in size to Red-tailed Hawk, and bulky, with tufted ears that give its head a cat-like shape.
