The great horned owl is a nocturnal bird, most active in the dusk of the evening and on moonlit nights, but it may be heard hooting at times at midnight in the dark of the moon. It hunts at night, yet it can see perfectly in the daytime. The bird often hunts just before dusk on dull days, and, on very dark days, it may be out before the middle of the afternoon. It will hardly allow a man to come within gunshot in daylight, though under the protection of darkness it may come very near him.
