Bible Lesson
“My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.”
Job 42:5 (NIV)

If you need wisdom on what choices to make-LOOK TO GOD! He will give you answers on the path to take.

  • A Great Horned Owl’s strong talons require a force of 28 pounds to open.
  • The eyes of a great horned owl do not move. Instead, the owl is able to turn its head 270 degrees to look in any direction.
  • The “horns” on their head are not ears. They are tufts of feathers, called plumicorns.
  • Their hearing is 10x times better than that of a human. And their ears are located on the sides of their heads under some feathers.
  • The great horned owl has cylindrical eyes–which acts sorta like binoculars.
  • The great horned owl's call is low pitch but loud – who-hoo-ho-oo
  • Listen to the owl's call
