Great Horned Owl

Great horned owls have been known to act as if wounded as a protest against intruders to their nests with young.

The great horned owl will flutter over the ground like a ruffed grouse uttering short “wailing” notes and beating the ground with one wing and then the other to act as if wounded as a protest against intruders to their nests with young.
