This Great Horned Owl showed up one evening in my neighbour's BBQ house here in Punta Colorada, Uruguay. The field guide says the size of these owls is between a crow and a goose. This one was very much towards the goose end of that scale. By the way, the Spanish word for owl is búho. It was gone the next morning but it left a large regalo.
