About Stamp

Great horned owl (Alberta) – The owl is named for its ear-like “horns,” which are actually just tufts of feathers. It has a deep hooting voice and a yellow-eyed stare, and can swivel its head more than 180 degrees to compensate for eyes that don't move in their sockets. Vise-like talons allow it to prey on animals as large as skunks and rabbits. The night hunter was selected as the province's official bird in a vote by schoolchildren.
