Great Horned Owl

Certain indigenous tribes regarded the great horned owl as the very personification of the Evil One.

Certain indigenous tribes feared the great horned owl’s influence and regarded its visits to their dwellings as portentous of disaster or death.

This fowl is the most morose, savage, saturnine, and untamable of all New England birds.
