Default The Great Horned Owl - Bubo virginianus

"Great horned owls are the largest eagle-owl in North America. Great horned owls are rumoured to have ten times more crushing power in their feet than humans have in their hands. An adult great horned owl reportedly has 500 pounds per square inch of crushing power in their feet, whilst the average adult human male has only about 60 pounds per square inch in his hands."

The following link includes a short audio on these owls:
