Great Horned Owl

https://faunafocus.com/home/august-2017/#jp-carousel-2344

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

Certain Indian 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.
