Great Horned Owl

The weather has been nice lately, so I've been going on walks. Well yesterday, on my walk, I startled something that flew out of a tree and down the row of trees. It was huge. When it landed, I realized it was an owl. I didn't know what kind, but it was huge!

Thanks to Google, I figured out it was probably a Great Horned Owl. Their bodies can be between 18"-25" long with a wingspan of 36"-60". Those upper numbers are close to how large I thought this owl was. I've never seen an owl in the wild. I've heard them, but never seen them.

I need to try to get a picture of it.
