The great horned owl often has a regular feeding roost, to which it brings its prey to be torn up and devoured.

The great horned owl, like some other birds of prey, often has a regular feeding roost, to which it brings its prey to be torn up and devoured. This may be an old, unoccupied nest, a wide, flat branch of a tree, the hollowed top of a stump, or a hollow place on a fallen log. Such places are profusely decorated with the remains of the feasts, feathers, bones, fur, pellets, and droppings; they are usually not far from the nesting sites.
